I was wandering around the bookstore when I stumbled upon this ingenious cover for Garage magazine featuring Cindy Sherman… well, sort of. The magazines 4th issue uses the theme of vanity as it’s starting point, dressing up four models in masks bearing the visage of Cindy Sherman. The effect is totally surreal. It reminds me a bit of something Chris Cunningham would have done back in the late 90’s or early 00’s. It comically skews the idea of what true beauty is into something else entirely, something equally engaging but in a confusing way. I think Patrick Demarchelier, the photographer, nailed this shot perfectly.
