Catherine Opie

In 2011, while the photographer Catherine Opie quietly documented Elizabeth Taylor’s opulent Bel Air home, the increasingly ill movie star confined herself to bed or, later, to the hospital. Although the two never met in person, Opie’s new book, 700 Nimes Road, assumes a powerful, shared intimacy through Opie’s pictures of Taylor’s shoes, jewelry, heirlooms, and other artifacts of fame and family.
