Catherine Opie, House #3

For over twenty-five years, Opie has photographed people, places, and buildings in and around Los Angeles. Her lens captures Bel Air facades decorated with intricate iron gates, West Adams shopkeepers with direct gazes, and undersides of overpasses. Taken as a whole, these works create a portrait of Los Angeles as a singular built environment.

Opie is the 2013 recipient of the Julius Shulman Excellence in Photography Award. Her work is characterized by formal rigor and exquisite prints, yet she maintains a commitment to the social function of photography—its power to comment on and transform everyday life.
