The photographer said she was surprised by the hospitality of the friends and strangers on her Facebook, who have housed and fed her with little reward.

“I have crawled on the floor, played Lego and read books with children I just met, admired chickens and prize roosters, shared a bowl of gumbo in New Orleans with a friend I hadn’t met in real life … and listened to stories of family tragedy and strength,” Hollander wrote on her website.

She also said the project has allowed her to mend some friendships that were stunted by conflict.
“We weren’t really on speaking terms – I think he said that I abandoned our friendship,” she said. “He’s got a great sense of humour so we were laughing by the end of it.”
