Taryn Simon’s Hidden America

May 24, 2013

Taryn Simon gains access to areas most Americans will never see. Like a nuclear waste storage facility. And a Death Row outdoor recreation facility (AKA “The Cage”).  And a studio for an Arabic-language American propaganda TV station that broadcasts throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

And she takes pictures.

The pictures of Kenny the White Tiger and of the woman undergoing hymen reconstruction surgery were particularly upsetting for me, and I loved the image of the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park.
