About The Work

This work was produced in celebration of "Catherine Opie: Figure and Landscape" at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The show's primary focus was high-school football, a subject that allowed Opie to explore issues of masculinity, community, and national identity.

For three years, Opie photographed football games and players in seven states across America. Atmospheric cues locate each regional site, while gestures and gazes reveal the adolescent players' disparate psychologies. Looking past the clichés associated with football, Opie perceives diversity in the individuals and communities that celebrate the game. Shown in conjunction with LACMA's exhibition, "Manly Pursuits: The Sporting Images of Thomas Eakins", Opie's work similarly addresses and overturns conventions of idealism and realism.
