Cinefemmes, a student organization that supports women in film, presents an evening with photographer Tanja Hollander. Tanja Hollander will talk about her project "Are you really my friend" an ongoing effort to create a portrait of every one of her Facebook friends in their homes all over the world -- and about the sociology of the internet that this project explores.
Tanja Hollander was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1972 and she moved to Maine after receiving a B.A. in photography, film, and feminist studies in 1994 from Hampshire College. Her current project “Are you really my friend” was recently exhibited at the Portland Museum of Art and continues to receive international media attention. Her work has been exhibited nationally at galleries in New York City and Boston and has twice been selected for the Portland Museum of Art Biennial, winning a purchase prize in 2007.
