Large Formatist Taryn Simon on Charlie Rose last Friday night, lots of talk about her new show at the Whitney in NYC, and the book An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar. Go to the 12 minute mark to start the interview.

I with you I love shooting the large format and I am happy to see anyone using/talking about the techinque. I saw part of Taryn's work in the Times and other pieces here and there around town. Great concept!! I think she is onto something exciting and interesting. That being said I don't think it deserves a show at the Whitney. It lacks craftsmenship, has the look and formal qualities more of a sketchbook study than of a complete project. I just finished reading this article on Gursky (another large formatist) in Modern Painter called "In Praise of Blandness" ........maybe Taryn could use a little more of that....
