a photo by Cindy Sherman

Untitled Film Still #48, 1979,(see fig. 5) by Cindy Sherman 

In this photo, a woman wearing old clothes with a suitcase, standing on the roadside. The road, stone, trees on the left and distant mountain are so dark that almost can not see anything. Only the sky, the route and the woman are clearly visible. The dark background makes the road has an illusion of infinitely extending. The woman will wait indefinitely. Sherman carefully selected clothes, scenes and composition, created a photo like a scene from a movie.
