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.
