Catherine Opie - Stephen Friedman Gallery

Catherine Opie, The Gang, 1990
Work by Catherine Opie is at Stepen Friedman Gallery until 21 January. The exhibition features portraits from the Girlfriends series - black and white portraits of her friends and lovers, taken from the mid eighties through to 2010, and a new body of photographs, Twelve Miles to the Horizon: Sunrises and Sunsets. These pictures document Opie's journey on a Hanjin cargo vessel as it travelled across the Pacific Ocean, from Korea to California. Opie photographed each sunrise and each sunset whilst living on board the ship for the 11 days that it took to make the journey.
