Taryn Simon, ‘Steroids (illegal)’, from Contraband

So, contrary to appearances, this blog is not moribund – I’ve just been busy. Really, really busy. I’m back now, but off again on vacation until the end of August. I hope to see you then, but in the meantime, check out this Taryn Simon project, Contraband, published in the NY Times.

The photo of the confiscated goods at JFK in an American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar was always my favorite, tied with the photo of the Hoh Rainforest, which is where I happen to be going.

Enjoy the rest of summer!
