Artist Cindy Sherman has taken modern society by the bullhorns Appalled and disgusted by the media myself I find relief in Shermans satire use of the camera Shermans work is unique in the way that her ideas challenge the notion of innate female sexuality exposed as the fiction of a real woman through the advertising media I have recently indulged in the mechanics of photography and for this reason am passionate about the cause for her concern which I believe she has developed like a true master Her photographs represent a highly theatrical method of characterizing the ever-changing face of the human condition Her artistic cause started when she was a young girl collecting knick-knacks old clothing and costume materials As the youngest of five Sherman was raised as a middle-class suburban child from Long-Island New-York Ironically enough Sherman failed her first photography course at the College level However it wasnt long before Sherman discovered to what extent the lens could warp and mask the human identity She presents this dehumanizing aspect of the camera by giving little or no explanation regarding her prints as all of her prints are Untitled It is through her exploration of the mutilated female image that Sherman developed her theory of the projective eye and its role in the world of the media Mimicking the trajectory of this projective eye she takes the results to an extreme in her collection of photographs entitled Fairy Tales This series of sexual images reflect her feminist concerns regarding the misrepresentation of the female body It is through her exploration of identity issues that Sherman uses her untitled works to dissect the nature of the impact of representation Sherman introduces her own body as a vessel She stages several drastically different film characters in her series of Untitled Film Stills The characters she depicts range from a floozy in a slip with a martini glass a perky-B librarian a film noire victim
