Untitled Film Stills

This is a self portrait of Cindy Sherman in the Untitled Film Stills in 1978.

In this picture she is on the foreground , she seems pensive and lost. Her posture is clear , her look is distant and she is anxious about the modern society. This picture calls into question the role of the woman at this period.

On the background , there are a fuzzy building and the relationship between the town , the architecture and Cindy is interesting. Everything is straight, the building and her posture are vertical whereas her look is more horizontal.

This black and white picture could be a political and advertising picture.
