Taryn Simon, Photographer


Taryn Simon is a photographer, but more than that, she is an investigator. Her intelligence burns bright and clear - I love that.  

I love how she interrogates the narratives behind photos and its connections to the fixed moment in time.  Official versions vs. “what happened.”  Lots of implications for the transfer of lived experience into narrative.

Rather than me talking about what she says so eloquently, I’ll let her speak for herself.
