This show by the renowned L.A photographer features two bodies of works spread across Lehmann Maupin’s two locations. The gallery’s LES venue presents Opie’s series, “700 Nimes Road,” in which she documented the interior of actress Elizabeth Taylor’s Bel Air home over a six month period.
In Chelsea, Opie includes more literal portraits of friends, shrouded in Old Master-ish light against black backgrounds. Also on view are blurry landscapes photos of National Parks inspired by the work of Gerhard Richter.
