In her Untitled Film Stills series of 1977-1980, Cindy Sherman used wigs, thrift-store costumes and other props to transform herself into a cast of female types from 1950s B-movies and television programs. These enormously influential images blend authenticity and artifice to pose probing questions about women's cultural roles and notions of self.
