700 Nimes Road: An “Indirect Portrait” of Elizabeth Taylor


Including 129 full-color photographs by fine artist Catherine Opie, “700 Nimes Road” is a thoughtful, yet poignant exploration of Elizabeth Taylor’s home (her “private sanctuary”) and possessions at her Bel Air, Los Angeles address. While the concept—photographing a celebrity’s belongings—might seem voyeuristic at first, Opie approaches creating an intimate portrait of the Hollywood icon in a tender way.
