Cindy Sherman: The Complete Untitled Film Stills

From 1977 to 1980, Cindy Sherman produced the groundbreaking Untitled Film Stills series of 70 black-and-white vintage publicity-still-like photographs starring herself. With this body of work, she changed the game forever. Now in her sixties, Sherman is poised to unveil a new body of work that was profiled this weekend in the New York Times: "With her pictures of women her own age, Ms. Sherman seems to have returned to a tenderness that hasn’t been seen in her work for the last several decades," Blake Gopnik writes. "She describes the images as 'the most sincere things that I’ve done — that aren’t full of irony, or caricature, or cartooniness — since the Film Stills.' It could even be that her mature leading ladies should be thought of as the aspiring starlets of those Film Stills 40 years on, after they’ve achieved success and come out the other side." Untitled Film Still #3, (1977) is reproduced from the MoMA classic.
