On July 14, SF MoMA will be opening a retrospective of the work of photographer Cindy Sherman.

Starting with her series Untitled Film Stills, Sherman’s photographs have consistently challenged the limits, meaning, and power of self-portraiture. In an article for the New York Review of Books, critic Sanford Schwartz characterized Sherman as “an impersonator—which in her case means being a creator of people, and sometimes people-like creatures.”
