700 Nimes Road offers an intimate look inside the private world of Elizabeth Taylor - a portrait of the movie star through a series of photographs of her Bel Air home by the renowned American photographer Catherine Opie. Taken over the course of six months in 2011 that coincided with the end of Taylor's life, Opie's images document the hushed rooms and personal belongings with which the actress surrounded herself, from her extraordinary jewels and wardrobe to cherished keepsakes and the more ordinary stuff of everyday life. An homage to the late star, Opie's sensitive portrayal of 700 Nimes Road reveals the arc of a fascinating and deeply lived life. With contributions by Hilton All, Ingrid Sischy, and Tim Mendelson.
