Woman Aims to Meet and Photograph Her 626 Facebook Friends in Real Life


After amassing 626 friends on Facebook two years ago, Tanja Hollander began to wonder how many of them were actually friends in the conventional sense. She then set out to answer the question by meeting each one of them and photographing them in their homes. The portraits are published on a website set up for the project, titled The Facebook Portrait Project, and each photo includes some information about the subject and their relationship to Hollander.

So far she has completed about a third of the portraits, and plans to continue working on the project until her friends list is completely photographed.
