Untitled Film Still #35 by Cindy Sherman (1979)

“Untitled Film Still #35” is a photograph by artist Cindy Sherman created in 1979. The black-and-white photograph depicts a woman standing in what appears to be a domestic interior, near a door. She is positioned in a way that suggests she’s either entering the room or about to exit. The subject, dressed in a patterned blouse and a knee-length skirt, looks over her shoulder with an ambiguous expression that could imply contemplation, apprehension, or distraction. Her hair is styled in a manner reminiscent of the 1950s or 1960s hairstyles. The setting is quite simple and unadorned, with a worn-out door and wall that convey a sense of decay or neglect. The overall composition has a cinematic quality, mimicking the aesthetic of a film still from mid-century cinema, which is a characteristic of Sherman’s work in this series.
