Taryn Simon - An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar
In this most poignant of series, celebrated American photographer Taryn Simon compiles an inventory of elusive, hidden and otherwise controlled spaces within the United States. Examining sites from within the fields of government, defence, science, industry and religion, Simon blurs the divide between those with the privilege of access and those without, reflecting on both the workings and mythologies of America in the process. The stunningly produced An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar arrives courtesy of Hatje Cantz (Berlin) and Books @ Manic.
