Jeffrey Opp is an American artist who creates photos, hand-bound art books, and conceptual artworks. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, Opp investigates the dynamics of landscape and economics, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what these concepts mean to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. He has taught at SJSU and held workshops at Makeshift Society in San Francisco, California and CoCommercial in Astoria, Oregon. He currently lives and works in the Portland, Oregon area.
