CINDY SHER­MAN

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - THE FENDI FEMINIST -

NEW YORK, 1994 Cindy is an im­por­tant artist and I find peo­ple like her fas­ci­nat­ing. I chose her cloth­ing for the shoot; if I hadn’t, it would have ended up look­ing like a self-por­trait. Any­way, I knew she had a par­rot and asked if we could do a shot with it. She said, ‘Sure, let me just put on some mas­cara.’ Then she ex­plained if she put the par­rot on her shoul­der, and put mas­cara on, the par­rot would eat the mas­cara from her eye­lash. I thought, ‘Oh my God, this seems a bit dan­ger­ous,’ but that’s ex­actly what hap­pened. She put the mas­cara on and the par­rot ate it. And that was that!
