US photographer Taryn Simon, a photographer covering the human soul's darker corners, has arrived in Moscow to present her new exhibition at the Multimedia Art Museum.

­The exhibition's photos were gathered from galleries and museums around the world, bringing together Taryn's major projects of the last decade.

Simon’s choice of subjects is often considered bizarre. They include people wrongly convicted of violent crimes, religious and political leaders, and items confiscated from people entering the US.

You can catch the exhibition at the Multimedia Art Museum until February 18.
