cindy sherman is perhaps one of the most well-known contemporary female artists. earlier this month she began her first exhibition of new works since 2004. the series of color photographs are a continuation of her self-portraits which investigate the concept of beauty, self-image and aging.

 

in these works,  sherman shoots herself alone in a studio and later adds backgrounds shot separately. although sherman is the subject of each photo, she disguises herself with different makeup and facial gestures that create an array of characters. in these particular works, sherman depicts upper-class ladies posing for over the top portraits.
