15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Disappearing Act

Street performers/buskers are ubiquitous in urban settings around the world. So much so, that it is becoming difficult to create a new “act.” This woman is sitting on a bench, part of a building that she uses to attach her backdrop. The idea itself seemed novel; the preparation extraordinary; and the result, quite engaging. I assume people are responding with at least enough donations for her to get up and go to this “job” everyday.
