Hidden America Exposed

Taryn Simon photographs the hidden and unfamiliar in America (see book here). Above, her 18 minute presentation takes you inside the America not often seen, providing glimpses of the CIA’s abstract art collection, the federal government’s marijuana grow room, a Braille edition of Playboy produced by the Library of Congress (just the articles, not the pictures, of course), and more. I’ve added this clip to our YouTube Favorites. Thanks to the various Twitter streams that flagged this clip for me this weekend.
