Cindy Sherman: The Complete Untitled Film Stills (HC)
Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills, a series of black-and-white photographs created between 1977 and 1980, is widely seen as one of the most original and influential achievements in recent art. Witty, provocative, and searching, this lively catalogue of female roles inspired by the movies touches a vital nerve in our culture. This book marks the first time that the entire series has been published as a unified work. Sherman has arranged the sequence of the pictures, and has written a personal essay about their making. To the original sixty-nine Film Stills she has also added a seventieth, from a roll of film that for some years was lost. Includes 70 duotone images.
