700 NIMES ROAD: CATHERINE OPIE. Hilton Als et al. DelMonico Books, Prestel Publishing, New York, 2015. 148 pp. with 127 ills. 31 x 31 cm. LC 2015-14184 ISBN 9783791354255 In English.
Publisher's description: The renowned photographer Catherine Opie takes on a challenging documentary project -- an "indirect portrait" of Elizabeth Taylor through her home and possessions. One of America's most celebrated living photographers, Catherine Opie works in series that are remarkably varied in both style and subject matter -- from intimate portraits of the LGBTQ community to beautiful, nearly-abstract landscapes featuring icefishing houses. Expanding that astonishing range of subjects further is Opie's ambitious recent series of photographs taken at the home of late movie star Elizabeth Taylor. Though glamour and celebrity are not common themes in her work, Opie was inspired by the possibilities this project offered -- recalling William Eggleston's series on Elvis Presley's Graceland, or her own photographs of Obama's 2008 inauguration, both of which represent indirect portraits of their subjects. The images in this moving collection were culled from photos Opie took over the course of six months, both on the grounds of and inside Taylor's home.
