    One thought on “Cindy Sherman”

    1. I really love Cindy Sherman s photographs, although I don t think of her as a photographer I think of her as artist who works in the photographic medium I m looking for engagement, not placement or lighting, when I go to her exhibitions or look through a book like this.Daedalus Books have this 40 book for a bargain price only 19.95 I will buy it from the wholesale division and get a discount on that.I m really looking forward to this I love art and photography books but I can t really afford the [...]

    2. This is the type of book I most enjoy after I ve seen an exhibition and I read this cold, without really knowing anything about the artist There are a couple excellent, essays and a short interview with John Waters, but the captions for each art piece don t have the kind of extra information I like to read While some of the works are shown so that their scale is obvious, and I did appreciate that, I don t think they captured the power and feelings seeing the museum exhibit would Seeing the exhib [...]

    3. I ve long been a big Sherman fan I can t say that this major retrospective changed my thinking about her work, but it reaffirmed that she is definitely one of the most important artists alive Going into the show, I meditated upon the fact that I hesitated to call Sherman a photographer, even though that is blatantly the medium in which she works Even though the lighting and composition in the photos is generally superlative one does not look at a Sherman for its aesthetic allure but for the inte [...]

    4. The photos in the book are much better than nothing but they lack the impact of the full size ones in the MoMA exhibit earlier this year The Respini and Burton essays are interesting if a bit jargonistic but the Sherman Waters interview seemed enlightening And the shuffling of chronology gets a mixed response, at least from me.

    5. A picture s worth a thousand words, if you re a non academic Intention, interpretation, politics all inform and invalidate the work of artists.

    6. This was an excellent look into the work, thought process and art trajectory of Cindy Sherman.I recommend this to anyone wanting to know about her work.
