“Creator/Preserver/Destroyer/Ask which one I am/There’s no drugged-out devils or/Square-halo angels/Walking among us/I am among no one/I am among no one/I am among no one/No one”—Excerpt lyrics from "Hey, Cruel World," by Marilyn Manson on Born Villain (April 2012)
The Faces of No One contains photographs by Chrystal Scanlon of Marilyn Manson fans as they were found waiting to watch the theatrical performer and artist sing during the North American leg of his 2012–13 world tour. Ms. Scanlon is a fan of Mr. Manson. The title of her exhibition of photographs comes from his song, "Hey, Cruel World." According to Ms. Scanlon, "The Faces of No One [is the title] because that is what we are. I have learned that the hardest part about being no one is not being no one at all. It is being no one even after you have been seen.” And Ms. Scanlon is a fan of the fans: “This project took me from the east coast to the west coast and back again a few times. I met so many wonderful people. I slept in a ton of parking lots, scary motels, and a few fancy ones too." And, at the end of her touring, Ms. Scanlon considered "driving thousands of miles for the best two hours of her life" a dream come true.
