23. Football Landscape #1 by Catherine Opie, 2007

Catherine Opie's Football Landscape #1 is among a series of photographs that investigate the formation of identity in culture, in this case: masculinity in America. Taking football as a constant in American male culture, Opie proceeds to examine representations of gendered masculinity and its connection to this truly American activity. Among both art that studies culture and Opie's portfolio as a whole, Football Landscape #1 is a piece that will be forever remembered.
