Places nobody knows about. Secret spaces which remain undiscovered for most of us. Scenarios we believed they only exist in fiction. Taryn Simon was granted access to the otherwise inaccessible. And captured those moments between mythology and daily functioning in her large-format camera series which is being exhibited in full for the first time at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt (29th sep 2007 - 27th jan 2008).

Catch a glimpse of what absurd and fascinating places exist. Yours
