Meet Cindy Sherman by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan -- NOT RECOMMENDED

Greenberg, Jan and Sandra Jordan Meet Cindy Sherman: Artist, Photographer, Chameleon. NONFICTION. Roaring Brook Press, 2017. 9781626725201

This biography introduces photographer Cindy Sherman, tells a bit about her background and the inspiration behind her artwork, and shows examples of her various self-portraits.

I have to admit, I did not read all of the text. The pictures alone were disturbing enough, but the one on page 48, which shows a woman in a naked suit -- complete with her various body parts -- was the final straw. Perhaps some will enjoy this exploration of Sherman's work, but I could not see putting this book in a school library.
