Anonymous: Million Masks follows the journey of the Million Mask March from 2013-2017, and integrates the history of Guy Fawkes and the infamous mask linked to his name. Through photographs, the impact of the legion is revealed and the physical presence of Anonymous is forever.
“Remember, remember the fifth of November.”
Since November 5th of 2013, thousands have gathered in cities around the world to take part in the Million Mask March. The event allows ordinary citizens to share in the efforts of renowned hacktivist group, Anonymous, and keep the legacy of Guy Fawkes alive.
Photographer, Anthony Tafuro’s quest to document rebels and subversive strains of activity in today’s popular culture persists.

Anthony Tafuro, author of the cult skateboarding book, BA. KU.: Cult Skating and Dark Rituals, (powerHouse Books, 2015) urges “Don’t follow corporate pinstripes! They’re not great.” Otherwise, the author expresses extreme appreciation, to all of the members that allowed a camera and flash into their unity.
