Taryn Simon

Taryn Simon is an very interesting photographer whose most recent work forms a book on contraband material confiscated when people entered the US. The resulting images provide a picture of what and why people attempt to smuggle.


  1. I saw an article about this in the Guardian. Was going to facebook you about it. Apparently she was at the airport for 5 days solid and only showered once. She's putting together a show for the Tate Modern, London in the Spring. Might be worth a trip!

  2. Thanks Amy I did not know she was exhibiting- will deffo be worth a look I'd imagine. I just saw Black Swan and now I understand what you mean, very sketchy!
