Publisher's Description

Catherine Opieʼs photographs include portraits and American urban landscapes, ranging from large-scale colour works to small black-and-white prints. A conceptual framework of cultural portraitism links her various photographic series.

Opie has been presenting images of people, subcultures, landscapes and environments ever since the early 1990s. She is passionate about the rights of minorities, democracy and equality – and how people live their lives.

Drawing inspiration from transgressive photography of Robert Mapplethorpe, Nan Goldin, and sex radicals, who provided a space for liberals and feminists, Opie has also done work ranging from the studies of master-plan communities to S&M erotica for lesbian owned sex magazines. Her portraits often document the queer community.
