B. 1996

The photography of Sidney Sherman feels like it carries a truly individual ambition. From New Jersey, Sherman moved to Miami to study Creative Advertising and has since stayed there, never putting down her camera. She has three main subjects: self-portraits, portraits of others, and street photography. For the latter, Sherman finds a way to introduce the spectator into lived-in city scenery. Her portraits play heavily with movement, especially as a relationship between human bodies and cloth, and skin itself, as the most relevant texture in the frame. Finally, her self-portraits are her most experimental work, in which she relentlessly chases different states of existence of her female form and at the same time to what extent shadows interact with it.
