Catherine Opie's "O Portfolio" was shown at LACMA in its entirety for the first time in a Los Angeles museum. The photographs depict sadomasochistic scenarios derived from her participation in San Francisco’s bondage community. The project began as a response to Robert Mapplethorpe’s "X Portfolio" (1978), which featured scenes of gay male sadomasochism. In contrast to Mapplethorpe’s confrontational photographs, Opie presents the subject almost as if it were a faintly recollected dream, or incomplete sense memory. Despite its sexually explicit origins, the portfolio is not necessarily about sex; rather, in Opie words, “It’s about intimacy." ⠀
