Cindy Sherman's Exhibition

Cindy Sherman is one of the masters of photography. If there is a reason why her work is not as well known as it surely deserves, that is because she is not commercial, but simply creative. This month the Monica Spruth and Philomene Magers Gallery in London dedicates an exhibition to the talented dress-maker artist. The massive images of Sherman (taken by her and on her) tell a dramatic, romantic and personal story. They project happiness, sadness, melancholy and love – the whole gamma of human emotions on a fiew images and a single object. Always on the border of insanity and absurdity, the photos manage to guide you through Sherman’s fairy tale world - a lonely piece of land, surrounded by the madness of the big city. Naturally, costumes play a significant role in the portraits, creating timeless visions of a world long gone.
