Hammer Projects: Cathy Opie: Portraits


Catherine Opie is known for her evocative images of contemporary America. Opie’s work draws as much from Renaissance painting as from the traditions of street photography, and her most recent body of work most directly engages with Old Master portraiture. The artist has chosen a myriad of subjects throughout her career, including the S & M community, city buildings, domestic life, high school football players, surfers and President Obama’s first inauguration.
