Photo booth Project



Photograph, chain, paperclip

16 cm x 11 cm (23 photographs) 



These pictures are part of an ongoing project where the workspace of the artist is transported to a semi-public space: the Photobooth. Found in shopping malls and train stations, you can insert a coin and get your pictures taken. The options are limiting. You only get 3 tries and then you have to pick the one you want to print. Colors are missing sometimes, the lighting is never ideal. Working with these limits, and creating installations within the photo booths, puts the process of making something right in the middle of people's daily life. Not just the end result, but the means to get there is a fundamental part of the work.
