CINDY SHERMAN’s face hits the newsstands Feb 9th on the Cover of Garage magazines’ ‘Vanity’ themed issue.
Reblogged from HAHAMAG.
This handsome book is the first comprehensive examination of the Pictures Generation, a loosely knit group of artists working in New York from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s.
It’s only $60 so if you were wondering what you could get me for a “beginning of Spring” Gift, I think this would really be perfect.
On a side note, I know they have to appeal to as many people as possible to sell this book, and I know that this is a super-iconic image of Sherman’s, but really? Not any other photograph in the book to put on the cover? Just seem predictable and boring. Doesn’t mean I don’t want the book though.

Sometimes I am not the biggest fan of Ms. Sherman (see: Clown Series at the Serpentine…freak me out) but every once in a while she really gets it right compositionally and I can’t help but say, “Yeppers, that’s why she gets paid the big bucks.”
