The 45 items below were all confiscated at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York at either the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Federal Inspection Site or the U.S. Postal Service International Mail Facility.

The items are just some examples of what people try to smuggle into the US every day on flights or by mail. Items ranging from the normal, such as counterfeit goods like handbags and watches to the extreme, such as deer penis or the corpse of little mammals.

All the items were photographed by photographer Taryn Simon for her book and exhibition, “Contraband”.

Darn it, now I know why I never received that shipment of bird corpses.
