St. Louis-born Artist is Taking Portraits of Her Facebook Friends—All 626 of Them
Flo Lunn, Brooklyn, New York—and the artist, reflected in the mirror behind her


Technology and social media have made it easier for us to keep in touch with our friends, but how connected can we really be when we only see each other through a computer screen?


St. Louis native-turned-Maine artist Tanja Hollander explores this concept in a portrait project entitled “Are You Really My Friend?” For the project, Hollander has set out to break through the protective layers of cyberspace and travel around the world to photograph her more than 600 Facebook friends in their own homes.
