Reviews - What do customers think about An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar?

Taryn Simon : Photo Book  Jul 12, 2008
it wasn't as i expected, small pictures, as unique as they were very few were visually stunning.
beautifully presented  Feb 15, 2008
This book creates its own space in a way only a few can do. Its images are (almost all) just right - including the right size. They aren't large but they invite intense observation and they look terrific.
Interesting photos, but book is lacking  Jan 26, 2008
This subject matter and the photos are interesting, but as a book it is lacking. The book is what I would call 'pretentious', in that there is alot of space wasted in the pages to make it look more 'arty'. Waste of paper is waht I call it. The photos are also too small for the available paper space. All in all, good intentions, but the publisher seems to have ruined it. Not recommended.
great debut  Nov 20, 2007
For people who are interested in photo art Simons Book ist a must have. Her intelligently chosen situations - the hidden and unfamiliar - remind me in their cool and calm way of being photographed the work of Edward Hopper. Simon absolutely knows how to catch the right moment and the right light. You get a view deeply below the surface of our modern civilisation.
Beside of this, the book is of great heavy quality, it's worth its price.
Well done, Taryn!
fantastic  Jul 30, 2007
It's really amazing all the work and effort that was put into creating these images. I saw her show at The Whitney like the other reviewer, and i really enjoyed her work so i bought the book on this site (I'm not trying to plug this site, but it was a lot cheaper here than other places i looked) The photographs absolutely stand on their own, but the captions are extremely important to the images. The book is simple, as are the images, but it is definately unique and unfamiliar.
