What does friendship really mean?

Social media sites get a lot of criticism slung their way — sure, they connect people (virtually, at least), but can they really serve as a stand-in for the complex, face-to-face relationships that have defined humanity for thousands of years?

Maine artist Tanja Alexia Hollander has set out to answer that question by personally meeting -- and photographing -- all 626 of her Facebook friends.

Read (part of) my story on her quest here in Artscope Magazine (and be sure to pick up the full issue!)
