Beginning with her Untitled Film Stills and continuing through her Centerfolds, Fashion, Disaster, Fairy Tales and History Portraits, Sherman explores constructions of female identity through staged and manipulated photographs. In more recent series, such as Civil War and Sex Pictures, Sherman has used grotesque imagery that functions as an ambiguous social commentary.
