The Photo Booth, the precursor to the “Selfie”.
Now in this day in age photo booths while fun at weddings (we had one at ours), are mostly sitting empty in malls across the world. There is just no need for them with camera’s on our phones to document every moment in our lives. However in days gone by, the photo booth was popular by all walks of life to capture whatever moment in life they wanted (no different from what we do today).
Therefore for today’s ‘Vintage Photo Tuesday’ I wanted to showcase various photo booth photos that were taken by kids, lovers, friends and families. Photos that would of eventually ended up in wallets, on dresser tables and on walls, reminding the subject or the holder of the image of a special moment in time.
