p.y.s.k. Cindy Sherman Edition

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Ah… Cindy, oh how I love thee…
Figured since she has some new work about, has been featured in the Sunday Times Magazine recently, and of course is simply someone who everyone should know about I’d do a People You Should Know on Cindy Sherman… After all she takes photos using herself to model characters too… enjoy (new work is at the bottom, two of these I hadn’t even seen before, god bless google image search!):

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #360, 1985

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #229, 1994

Cindy Sherman, Untitled

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #421, 2004

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #465, 2008

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #468, 2008

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #469, 2008

Cindy Sherman, Untitled #477, 2008

Also heres a nice video I found where some lady talks about the new work, lets you see some more of them…

p.s. I find it hilarious that when googling her to get the images for this I was directed to my own blog on page two of the google image search with the Alex Prager images that I posted in a previous p.y.s.k. because I tagged that with Cindy Sherman considering the blatant influence Sherman’s early work has had on Prager…

An Annie Leibovitz moment…

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

What happens when you take my favourite book ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll and divide it by one of my favourite photographers Annie Leibovitz… add in some of the worlds top fashion designers (both in person and in attire) and print it in the pages of Vogue….

This does (oh and my mind explodes with joy):

The Model is Natalia Vodianova as Alice here with Olivier Theyskens…

Now 1) if I need to explain to you who these people are you need a slap, and 2) if I need to explain the characters or situations from the books to you, you need more than a slap…

p.y.s.k…. Alex Prager edition

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

I had the pleasure of viewing the work of Alex Prager at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London some time ago. The narrative suggestions as well as the general attractiveness of the image in terms of catching the eye made the exhibition very compelling. She has something thats a bit Cindy Sherman-esque, helped by her similar appearance but also likely an intentional nod to Sherman’s Oeuvre. Check these out from her Big Valley’ series:
