Me and Sister Sue – February 1998


February 1998, Southland Shopping Centre, Melbourne

Here is my sister Sue, who now lives in Dublin, and me, after a shopping trip to get our nails done and buy cosmetics. Manicures have been very rare in my life, so I am glad I have one commemorated!

This is another Polaroid format photobooth photo. I haven’t seen one of these booths in over 10 years. The little image on the bottom of the Polaroid is from another strip of photobooth stickers from a different outing. I think Sue kept the rest.

This strip is part of the series Photobooth 41 Year Project. You can see all the posts that document the series by clicking here.

    • Thanks Lisa. Many people say how alike we are. Except that Sue is about a foot shorter than me!!!!

        very sweet! people say my sister and i look alike too – except she’s blond and does not often have her picture taken (hehe).


        • Is the hehe about the fact that you might sneakily take her photo when she isn’t looking or ignore he pleas to not shoot her? (Good on you, I say) Part of my obsession with booth photos came about when, as a teenager, a group of friends didn’t remember that I had been on holiday with them as I was not in any of the photos. I had refused to be included and thus they forgot me,and this was only 12 months later. I was outraged and have forever since been very keen to get my pic taken. “Don’t forget I exist” is my motto!
