In her Film Stills, Cindy Sherman dressed up as female characters from the black-and-white films she saw in her youth. These characters include such stereotypes as the working girl, the Hollywood housewife, and the attractive woman who leads men to danger. The characters in Sherman’s Film Stills are invented, but they might seem familiar to anyone who has seen old Hollywood movies.

about the film stills

Sherman has explained that the photograph “should trigger your memory so that you feel you have seen it before. Some people have told me they remember the movie that one of my images derives from, but in fact I had no film in mind at all.”
