Untitled #323 by Cindy Sherman (1995)

The photograph “Untitled #323” by artist Cindy Sherman was created in 1995. It is a striking image featuring an extreme close-up of a face. The photograph is characterized by a high-contrast look, with dark tones dominating the image and certain facial features enhanced with bold makeup. The subject’s eyes are particularly notable, catching the viewer’s attention with what appears to be a piercing gaze accented by blue-toned eyeshadow. The overall effect is both intense and intimate, with a play on shadow and light that lends the image a dramatic, somewhat unsettling quality. Sherman is known for her conceptual portraits that often involve her assuming various personas; this particular image continues in that vein, presenting a deeply expressive and stylized visage that invites the viewer to contemplate the identity and story behind the face.
