Näkki Goranin’s recently published book “American Photobooth”, spurred this morning’s NY Times article about the history of the photobooth. Interestingly, the photobooth got its start in Times Square in 1926 and became a nationwide sensation. People have always held an affection toward the booth. Even Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino are collectors of the booth, according to the article. My love affair with the photobooth lies in the anthropological documentation of people and relationships. The pictures above are from In the Booth, a collection of photobooth photos and photomatics from the 1930s through the 1970s. They relay an amazing sense of time, place and culture. The photographs also transmit feelings – shy, bold, coy, fraternal – and intimacy. People Magazine also published this little piece about Goranin’s book.
