"An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar'' is a book by Taryn Simon, which opens doors to top-secret, most confined areas in the world. Photograph Taryn Simon enjoyed, a free-pass across the US most restricted areas; she went on recording through her lens the out of bounds "hidden & unfamiliar" places, capturing during four years unexpected images of a strange world one can't picture, unless seen by the naked eye. Her underground pictorial journey is an astonishing achievement!!From Top:
