Documentary snapshots at Jeu de Paume in Paris

In Paris, the Jeu de Paume presents the very 1st anthological exhibit in France of the work of American photographer Taryn Simon.

She utilizes both pictures as well as text to attempt to reach a deeper meaning of photography. Taryn offers a series of expressions regarding the role of images in the society – control, power, the separation between the public and institutions are only some of the topics she explores.
