Are You Really My Friend?

So a woman who lives in Maine, and who has 626 Facebook friends decided to go around the world and photograph them all!  The results are on display at Mass MoCA and they are amazing.  She has done an enormous number of wonderful portraits of individuals, children and adults, and families.  She was able to actually photograph 420 of them and each of the portraits is on the wall.  On sheer material hanging from the ceiling are images of Post It notes where people were asked to talk about what a real friend is..  

This is a close-up of some of the portraits that were on the huge wall display that stretched the length of the gallery.  The idea is really amazing, and the variety of the photographs such a joy to see.
