In 1999 Cindy Sherman (*1954, Glen Ridge, NJ lives and works in New York) returned with the “Broken Doll” series to black and white photography for the first time after her well-known "Untitled Film Stills". Due to the matte grey low contrast and the washed out refracted light the works appear soft and romantic, juxtaposing the harsh sexual imagery of mutilated dolls that staged in violent and explicit sexual poses.
