My good friend Dan turned me onto the MoMa’s Flickr stream showcasing all the particpants in the Marina Abramovic performance piece, The Artist Is Present. The portraits are candid, raw and sometimes extremely emotional. Often you will see someone openly weeping, are locked in an intense stare, a seemingly starting feat considering that no words are ever exchanged.
I have literally sepnt hours pouring over the images, they are all fantastic, and on a side note you can also do a bit of celebrity hunting as well. I have already spotted Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, Anthony, and Sharon Stone.
