ICYMI: Ultimate Selfie Queen Cindy Sherman Has Made Her Insta Public

It’s loose.

Cindy Sherman basically invented the selfie, and she’s been successfully putting her own mug in front of a camera for yonks. And when we say ‘successfully’, we mean something a bit more complex: she’s been challenging the unwritten rules of self-portraiture, often morphing into new characters or versions of herself, reinventing or tapping into whatever she feels she is in the moment of snapping.
Up until now, she’s been a very private artist. But very recently she pushed her instagram profile to public, letting us into the eye of her front camera. Usually a sacred space — honestly, who would you give honest access to your front camera? — we can now see her distorted images and her truths. Not to mention her real talent, being captions. Take a look, it’s loose:

Who me?!
