Cindy Sherman for MAC Cosmetics (2011)

Since we have been discussing the photographic works of Cindy Sherman, I thought I would share this campaign photo to show how relevant Sherman still is today. In Fall 2011, Cindy Sherman posed for a MAC Cosmetics campaign advertisement, dolled up incognito with the company’s products. I found this really interesting because I  noticed this while walking around 29th St. Mall, in which Sherman’s portrait was blown-up and on window display. I chose to post this specific photograph because I think it’s a great example of showing how influential Cindy Sherman still is (since 1970s) and how mainstream she has become as a contemporary artist.

Sherman posed as three different individuals for the cosmetic campaign; a quite glamourous middle-aged woman, a serious-looking clown, and a jovial young lady.

  1. Wow! I’ve always loved Cindy Sherman’s older work, but I had no idea that she is still so relevant today. I’m really drawn to works that involve unique make up, different hair styles, and lots of colors, so I’m glad that I got to see these photos. I still can’t get over how different she looks in all her pieces. Thanks for posting this!
