September 20 2021: A Shaded View on Fashion: Cindy Sherman-CONTACT by Jeanette Montgomery Barron

Thanks to Diane Pernet at A Shaded View on Fashion for featuring my new book Cindy Sherman — Contact this week. Pernet writes:

"Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Jeanette Montgomery Barron in Paris a few years ago at the Outsider Exhibition. Montgomery-Barron is well known for her black and white portraits and has documented the ’80’s in New York. Her first portrait was of Francesco Clemente, followed by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat. She captured all of the icons of the 80’s: Cindy Sherman, the subject of her most recent book: Contact-Cindy Sherman, William Burroughs, David Salle, Jenny Holzer, Julian Schnabel, Barbara Kruger, Robert Mapplethorpe, Kathryn Bigelow…

CONTACT contains 40 portraits of Cindy Sherman and 4 contact sheets shot October 31st, Halloween in Cindy Sherman’s studio, New York City. For the first time we see Cindy Sherman as …Cindy Sherman."
