20 “Strictly Limited Edition” portfolios signed and numbered by Jeannette Montgomery Barron, containing 9 archival pigment prints, printed on Hahnemühle Photorag Baryta paper. Encased in a blood orange canvas clam shell portfolio with ebony de-bossed foiled titles, complete with a front mounted extended cobalt blue opening chord. ‘CONTACT’ was shot Thursday 31st October, Halloween 1985 in Cindy Sherman’s studio, New York City by Jeannette Montgomery Barron. What characterises these portraits is a kind of transparency, a truth of sorts. Photographed without the fanfare of the assorted props, makeup or wigs, Cindy is her own subject. Here Jeannette captures a different yet similar Cindy “gaze” an awareness that looks inward not out.
This collection of photographs is part of a remarkable compendium of portraits shot by Jeannette of renowned personalities from arguably the most exciting era of New York City underground culture—the 1980s—when the young and indomitable flocked downtown in search of places to work and live among like-minded collaborators. These musicians, filmmakers, painters, writers, fashion designers, publishers, actors, models, and photographers played together, worked together, made their own rules and changed our culture, as we know it, forever.
