Good Art #22. The Picture Collection.

Photography and categorisation have long made for good bed partners with Taryn Simon's latest work, The Picture Collection, illustrating the point clearly. With 12,000 subjects this new work mines the New York Public Library's vast archive to show idiosyncratic classification systems and ideas resulting in a compelling piece. I'm in awe, a trip to New York in the offing?
