Performing the Middle Finger.

The middle finger is ubiquitous; so ubiquitous, in fact, that flipping/flicking someone off has become a self-referential cliche. How do we perform what is recognized as the most performative of gestures? The subjects in these photos had no knowledge of the project, no time to prepare or rehearse, and no idea what "performance" they would be giving. Immediately after prompting the subject, I took one photograph. The images are below, in no particular order.
