Taryn Simon – An American Index Of The Hidden And Unfamiliar

Taryn Simon - Nuclear Waste Encapsulation and Storage Facility

The photography of Taryn Simon is now on view at Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills. She has gone where few have tread and returned with evidence that is both visually and conceptually compelling. From a nuclear waste facility (above) to a fireworks testing ground or a gun manufacturing plant (below), Simon has hit some hot spots and tendered an aesthetic for danger and controversy.
