Featuring 230 key works from Cindy Sherman''s most celebrated photo series--including Untitled Film Stills, Centerfolds, Cover Girls, Fashion, and Society Portraits--this is the first book to address her work through the lens of portraiture and style in the era of social media and selfies.

Cindy Sherman is among the most influential artists of her generation. Using herself as a model in a range of costumes in invented situations, she plays with images created and popularized by mass media, popular culture, and fine art.

Whether using makeup, costumes, props, or prosthetics to manipulate her own appearance, or devising elaborate narrative tableaux, the entire body of forty years'' work constitutes a distinctive response to contemporary culture.
