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.
