Cindy Sherman is one of my favorite photographers. One of her main focuses is to satirize the beauty standards are in society. In her portraits she dresses up in ridiculous clothes and over does her makeup and tan. She pairs the portraits with brightly colored backgrounds to add a clownish effect to the image.
She is a woman of many traits. She acts as the photographer, model, makeup artist, wardrobe, and hairdresser for her shoots. I identify with this too. I love doing all those things so I can get the specific look I want for photographs.
