Since the mid-1970s Sherman has been making portraits featuring herself in a myriad of guises and situations. Paradoxically, her intention is to encourage self-reflection in the viewer: 'I'm trying to make other people recognise something of themselves rather than me', she explains. In these photographs, she appears as a model covering herself up after posing for a nude centrefold. Her sometimes wounded, sometimes confrontational gaze suggests exploitation rather than glamour.
