Catherine Opie's Bravo was a part of the exhibit More American Photographs at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art in San Francisco, which commissioned twelve photographers to travel the country and document the land and its people. Modeled after the Depression-era photography program of the Farm Security Administration, the commissions update the nation's visual imagery, creating a broad picture of the contemporary socio-economic moment. Opie's photographs from the series focus on the idea of community. She drew her inspiration from stores in her immediate geographic area, Los Angeles, to cultivate feelings of both connection and disconnection.
