Taryn Simon


Tayrn Simon photographs the people and places that we would not normally see. Whether it be restricted government areas or people falsely convicted of crimes, her work takes on a new depth when viewed with the text that accompanies it.

You can find a video of her discussing her work here.

Or visit her website.

Another photographer working in the same vein is Simon Norfolk, a British photographer who began his career as a photographer for ultra-leftist publications and has over the last decade created a epic project on war – check his work out here: and great interviews with him here: and here:
