Changing Faces: Cindy Sherman

American photographer Cindy Sherman is quite frankly a creative genius. She is all in all a one woman show. She takes complete self-portraits, everything from the special effects make-up, lighting, and styling, is all done solely by Sherman. I was so excited the first time I discovered her work. I accidentally visited her exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, and a few years later in 2006, I stumbled upon her retrospective in the Jeu de Paume Gallery, Paris. She has crept in and out of both fashion and film worlds as she pleases; she has art directed a monograph ad for Marc Jacobs shot by Juergen Teller, self styled a photo shoot for French Vogue in 2007, and directed the film Office Killer.Her subject range is vastly diverse and ranges from a clown, a president, a prostitute and Sophia Loren.
