This blog will be a record of my photobooth collection starting in 1973 with a single black and white image of me. I have been collecting booth and id-photos in ernest, since a trip to South America in 1989. I often traded photobooth and other small portrait photos with other travellers. The South American Handbook (or was it the Lonely Planet? – I had both) recommended travelling with numerous copies of id-photos for visa use and border crossings, so most people were well stocked and willing to swap.
