Catherine Opie is an American fine-art photographer.
She studies the relationships between mainstream and infrequent society, with a large emphasis on sexual identity, specializing in portraiture, studio, and landscape photography.
Fine-Art photography is a kind of photography wherein a photographer’s artistic point of view is highlighted in the photographs. A fine-art photographer attempts to express themselves through their photography and moves beyond the mere act of capturing a still.
Through photography Opie documents the connections between the individual and the space inhabited.
