Ted Talk : Taryn Simon photographs secret sites

Taryn Simon exhibits her startling take on photography — to reveal worlds and people we would never see otherwise. She shares two projects: one documents otherworldly locations typically kept secret from the public, the other involves haunting portraits of men convicted for crimes they did not commit.

With a large-format camera and a knack for talking her way into forbidden zones, she photographs portions of the American infrastructure inaccessible to its inhabitants.
