The Artist Is Present—Portraits

Posted by Alex Moshakis,

Earlier this year, performance artist Marina Abramović did surprising things to people by doing nothing much at all. And while she sat in a chair in a MoMA gallery, sometimes staring, sometimes not, Marco Anelli went about photographing everybody who visited, creating a body of work hugely appealing in the way it captures human variety, both physical and emotional.

Above are a number of Anelli’s portraits, taken from MoMA’s flickr page.
