Chris Buck takes pictures of celebrities after giving them 30 seconds to hide. Here’s Cindy Sherman:

I’ve gotta get over to the MoMA to see the Eugene Atget exhibition. PDN has a selection of photos from the show.

Cindy Sherman retrospective coming to MoMA

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 23, 2011

But we’ve got to wait a whole year…the exhibition opens on Feb 26, 2012.

The MoMA retrospective will be thematic. There will be rooms devoted to Ms. Sherman’s explorations of subjects like the grotesque, with images of mutilated bodies and abject landscapes, as well as a room with a dozen centerfolds, a takeoff of men’s magazines, in which she depicts herself in guises ranging from a sultry seductress to a vulnerable victim. There will also be a room that shows her work critiquing the fashion industry and stereotypical depictions of women.
