Below are two photographs by Sherman, they are not my favourite photographs of hers however they are the photographs which grabbed my attention straight away by evoking quite a horrible feeling. From a young age i have not liked the circus, these clown which are supposed to entertain children look like something that should be in a horror film , The way they laugh and smile menacingly disturbs me.

Therefore i feel Cindy Sherman has captured this feeling spectacularly , the spirals in the background confuse me the more i stare at them and the use of black or white paint on the clowns face makes them ghost like or deathly.
