One of the most important artists of her generation, Catherine Opie uses photography as a means to examine the complex relationship between ourselves, our communities, the spaces we occupy, and the natural landscape. In this video, the artist discusses her most recent body of work, “monument/monumental,” a series of reflective images taken over the course of the last year while the artist traveled across the United States, and a new monograph published by Phaidon Press that re-contextualizes the breadth and richness of her artistic vision over the last four decades.
