Cindy Sherman is renowned for establishing photography as one of the most important contemporary art forms. She is also famous for the manner in which she has used her own image over decades to produce an astonishing gallery of character studies. 

Produced in association with QAGOMA's presentation of the first exhibition of Sherman's large-scale photographs made since 2000 to be seen in Australia and New Zealand, this richly illustrated publication explores the artist's articulate, incisive and influential practice.

Essays by Miranda Wallace, Ellie Buttrose, Robert Leonard, Betsy Berne, with a Foreword by Chris Saines.

Those characters are about women getting older - women who are trying to show the fruits of their efforts in life but are not really comfortable with it, which is what you see underneath. Cindy Sherman 2013

The exhibition Cindy Sherman opens at the City Gallery Wellington 19 November 2016 - 19 March 2017.
