Summary

  • "Photobooth" draws a fantastic, if incomplete, inventory of artistic variations on the snapshot, bringing together works of art and self-portraits of persons, both known and unknown, from the early days to the present. The book also includes several gatefolds and special tipped-in gatefolds that emulate the classic photobooth presentation of snapshot sequences.
