Hidden and Unfamiliar Interview by Rosecrans Baldwin [The Morning News]
Though some of the subjects are familiar, the visuals are intentionally fresh and chaotic. American-born Simon’s previous work as a fashion and assignment photographer is pleasingly detectable as she makes visible the most private spheres of modern science, nature, government, entertainment, and religion in America.Simon’s photographs have been exhibited internationally, at venues including The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin. Her work has appeared in publications including Vogue, New York Times Magazine and The New Yorker.
