Pictures by Women: Photo by Cindy Sherman

I like the raw quality of this photo by Cindy Sherman. There is a visceral expression in this character’s eyes and pose. It’s a mixture of many emotions at once, and I am completely drawn into the story behind the photo, wondering where this girl is and why.

I’m reminded of the reason I like writing songs. It’s about riding that line with lyrics and imagery to tell just enough but not too much, so the story can become anyone’s. A song is very similar to a photograph in that way. It’s simply a snapshot of a certain time and place, and an opportunity for someone to be pulled into another world.
