On Display: Elizabeth Taylor’s Life In Pictures


Elizabeth Taylor

The alluring lifestyle of late actress Elizabeth Taylor is intimately on display at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale in a photography exhibit running now through June 18. Contemporary photographer Catherine Opie takes viewers behind the lens and into the Bel Air home of the celebrity mogul. Detailed images feature Taylor’s closets brimming with clothing, jewels, shoes and personal belongings, while snapshots of rooms throughout her home provide close-up details of the starlet’s opulent lifestyle. Perhaps what is more stunning than a glimpse into the life of the rich and famous is the way Opie captures her vignettes. Interesting angles, overlooked objects and a range of visual scales all provide for one spectacular glimpse into life not only in Hollywood, but as one of the most deeply fabulous individuals of our time.
