Oh, Photoautomat

words: molly

One of my obsessions is photo booths and the pictures taken in them: instantaneous self-portraits taken for yourself rather than for somebody else. An antithesis to the digital age!

So… Berlin’s Photoautomat booths were definitely a perk of moving to the city. These original old-school booths are for fun’s sake only (the black & white pics wouldn’t cut the mustard in passports).

Kastanienalle’s booth says: “Photograph yourself! For loved ones, holidays, friends, Grandmas, OAPs, children, revellers, day dreamers, birthdays, weddings, the unemployed and actresses…”

How great is that?
