Artist Ann-Marie VanTassell presents an installation that peers into the world of NASCAR –  the largest spectator sport in America. In a style reminiscent of anthropological photographer, Catherine Opie, the artist presents portraits of  the everyday people that bring the sport to life.

“I photograph people that I think are fascinating. That is not to say my photographs do not say anything about me. Whether I admire my subjects for their beauty, character, or strength, something about who they are helps me discover something about myself.”
-Ann-Marie VanTassell
