Meg Birnbaum is an emerging artist from Somerville, MA.  Her most recent work focuses on the lives of performers.  She takes great interest in the idea that a person can transform from an average every day human into a partaker of another time period, character, or idea.  Featured here are a few pieces from her newest work Person/Persona.“I hoped that through this project I could discover the unifying element that performers had (that I don’t) and what enabled them to take such risks in public. I’m still working on those questions but I have realized that maybe what I was really looking to discover were ways that I could ‘perform’ better as a photographer, gain stronger connections with people and find community.”To see more from this collection check out: Emerging Artist 2011To see more of Meg Birnbaum check out: Portfolio
