Cindy Sherman: From Housewife to Horror Queen, the 'Unchallenged Cornerstone of Postmodern Photography'

In her February 2012 review of Cindy Sherman's mid-career MoMA retrospective, Roberta Smith writes, "we are confronted by an artist with an urgent, singularly personal vision, who for the past 35 years has consistently and provocatively turned photography against itself. She comes across here as an increasingly vehement avenging angel waging a kind of war with the camera, using it to expose what might be called both the tyranny and the inner lives of images, especially the images of women that bombard and shape all of us at every turn." Featured image, Sherman's iconic "Untitled Film Still #6" (1977), is reproduced from MoMA's stellar exhibition catalog, one of our most highly recommended holiday gift books of the year.
