Catherine Opie’s photographs include series of portraits and American urban landscapes, ranging in format from large- scale color works to smaller black and whiteprints. Moving from the territory of the body to the framework of the city, Opie’s various photographic series are linked together by a conceptual framework of cultural portraiture. In 2000, she was appointed Professor of Fine Art at Yale University, and in 2001 she accepted the position of Professor of Photography at the University of California, Los Angeles, which she currently holds.
