Catherine Opie has photographed people and architecture in and around Los Angeles, California for over twenty-five years. She has successfully captured the interplay between architecture and urban life by photographing the subcultures and castaways of Los Angeles, from the undersides of freeways to lonely Beverly Hills mansions. These works create a portrait of Los Angeles as a singular built environment.

Catherine Opie: In & Around L.A. features work from five distinct series created over the past two decades that highlight Opie’s captivation with the city. These include Freeways (1994-95), Houses (1995-96), Landscapes (1996), In and Around Home (2004-05), and Shopkeepers (2011).

The show is curated by Emily Bills and Karin Higa and runs until March 24, 2013 at the WUHO Gallery in Los Angeles. The 4th annual Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award will be presented to Catherine Opie at the reception on March 2nd from 6-8pm. This prestigious award is given to an early to mid-career artist who challenges the way viewers look at physical space.

For more information, please visit the WUHO Gallery site.
