Catherine Opie

Pushing the envelope is nothing new to Catherine Opie, her photography “leaves no man (or woman) behind.”  She has collections that include surfers, members of the LGBT community, football players, landscapes, children, basically she captures life as it is being lived.  Catherine Opie’s work pushes boundaries, captivates the on-looker with her documentary photography, and reminds us that true beauty is every where.   


The Guggenheim is currently hosting a mid-career survey of Opie’s photography, which includes all of her work from 1988 on up to 2008.  Check it out, the exhibit is open until Janurary 5th, 2009.


  1. I saw the Opie show while I was in NY over Thanksgiving. It was one of the best exhibitions I’ve seen in a long time. Opie is just amazing at her craft, her photos are a treat to behold, even when the subject is less than pretty.
