Photography: Queen Of Selfies - Cindy Sherman @ Metro Pictures , New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Cindy Sherman is the queen of selfies. The photographer is famous for her artful self-portraits she has been creating for decades. The gallery Metro Pictures in New York showed recently her newest collection (metro ).

The press release explains, that the displayed series, created this year, "focuses on the first era that presented complex independent women characterized by exaggerated makeup, modern clothing and seductive poses in 1920s Hollywood publicity photos".

The curators add: "Taking further advantage of new technical options, Sherman's photographs are printed directly onto metal using dye-sublimation printing technology that eliminates the necessity of traditional glass protection".

I show here my favorites from the exhibition, as usual a very subjective selection.
