This spring I became immersed in the fake Facebook event phenomenon where people were creating and promoting bogus concerts online. I set out to photograph as many as I could, even if that meant photographing a rural South Carolina video rental store at 2:30am.

In simplest terms, the project is an example of the divisiveness and manipulation that occurs through our beloved social media platforms.
