A few months ago in New York, D and I saw the Cindy Sherman retrospective at MoMA with my fam. It is the new version of an earlier show I saw and loved while studying abroad in Paris what feels like so many years ago. The show was great and her powers of transformation, especially in her most recent socialite series, staggering. Was thinking about her when I came across this series by photographer Nacho Rojo and His girlfriend called "couples."

In addition to the more extreme changes of costumes, hair and makeup, I love the subtle pursing of the lips or tilt of the chin that creates a whole new character.
