About Yosemite

Catherine Opie’s portrait of Yosemite National Park is meditative and personal, focusing on individual elements – a waterfall, a tree or the expansive sky above – rather than on the majestic impression of the place for which it is known. Indeed, when she does step back and present a wider view of the vista she is facing, she pulls it out of focus, allowing for a moment of reflection before moving on to the next photograph.

“Like the Romantic painters before her, Opie expresses a desire to return to nature for quiet contemplation. She does not ask for much; she would probably photograph anything ‘so long as they are wild.’ While pointing at the beauty of these sights, she makes a subtle plea for environmental preservation: if society goes on operating in such an unsustainable manner, all of this is what we are poised to lose.” — Art Asia Pacific
