I can’t seem to keep from sorting boxes of old photos, even though I know it’s more practical to leave them until last. My first thought when I saw this one: Oh– my own Cindy Sherman movie stills!

In photographer Cindy Sherman’s early series The Complete Untitled Film Stills, she often worked in black and white, recreating the atmosphere of B-movies or foreign films, and posing and dressing herself as an actress in their stories.

I know I have big projects that I should be finishing, but taking a photo-break from time to time is lots more fun, especially when it involves life imitating art, or, in this case life imitating art imitating life (and that sentence could go on indefinitely).
