Catherine Opie

This photo of Opie's son Oliver is from her most recent project "In And Around Home."

The artist Catherine Opie has spent her career photographing the seemingly banal but iconic Southern California. Photographs of surfers, freeways, strip malls, tract homes and McMansions are now on view at the Orange County Museum of Art. So too is Opie's latest project "In And Around Home."

Queena Kim talked with Opie about what's in the show and what's missing: the gay S&M photos that launched Opie's career in the mid-1990s.
