Taryn Simon @ Gagosian

Copyright Taryn Simon

Taryn Simon's newest work, Contraband will be on view at Gagosian Beverly Hills through November 6, featuring items confiscated entering the US at JFK. Over 5 days, she shot over 1,000 confiscated items. I'm guessing not all will be on display...

This work may be a bit too typological for my taste but I can't balk at an opportunity to see my number one photo crush in person.

Opening Reception:

Wednesday, September 22nd, 6-8pm
456 N. Camden Drive


TED Talk
On Charlie Rose
