For this project we were asked to make a work by witch we search a work/photographer. We were asked to base our work on every way we wanted on a work of the photographer we choose. I choose Cindy Sherman.
I choose her work "Untitled Filmstills".
The Untitled Film Stills
The series Untitled Film Stills, 19771980, with which Cindy Sherman achieved international recognition, consists of 69 black-and-white photographs. The artist poses in different roles and settings (streets, yards, pools, beaches, and interiors), producing a result reminiscent of stills typical of Italian neorealism or American film noir of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. She avoided putting titles on the images to preserve their ambiguity.
Cindy Sherman is a photographer who puts herself in an "other person". According to her, her pictures weren't self portraits cause she puts herself in a roll.
Why I'd choose this work was cause of her self portraits. The point of putting yourself in a roll, I think, is very interesting. I translated this aspect with my cosplays. I put myself in a roll. So I photographed myself in my cosplays on a specific location.
