Abstract (English)

" Examining Sherman's use of photographic techniques, from camera angles (the famed Centerfold series, for example) to specific styles of lighting, Krauss suggests that the meaning of Sherman's work can best be deriyed from her constructive methods and their aesthetic and philosophical ramifications and carefully builds to the notion of Sherman as an artist engaged in a dialogue most particularity with art itself. In a further essay, Norman Bryson, internationally known for his pioneering theories on the semiotics of looking, explores Sherman's most recent, horror-show images of mannequins (known as the Sex Picture) and identifies their place in her continued out-of-body investigations. Along with a bibliography and chronology, more than 200 illustrations (140 in color), including numerous unpublished works, represent Sherman's complete career to date. " -- Flap of the book.
