Pretty little Barb is posing so beautifully in this photobooth image, that it is tempting to assume that she had already been in a booth on more than one previous occasion. Barbara’s full name is hand written in ink on the back of this photo but unfortunately the script is mostly illegible after her first name. At some point someone has added in pencil, Barb, aged 4 1/2.


This is a large format photobooth photo that has been hand coloured. It could possibly be an enlargement of a smaller booth photo, however as there were some machines that produced larger size images, I would say from the quality and crispness of the photo that this is indeed the original size.

Barb is wearing what I think is a lapel boutonniere, which I believe is the correct term for a flower that has a small tube water supply, that can be attached to clothing. I am not sure of this interpretation, so please take a look at the detail below and let me know what you think.

The photo measures 60 x 83 mm and came from the USA.


3 July 1999, Chadstone, Melbourne

This is my brother-in-law, Timo and his son Cal, with me peeking in from the side.

There was a booth outside the cinema complex at Chadstone Shopping Centre that I used whenever I could. This was taken after seeing the movie The Mummy with Brendan Fraser. Baby Calvin slept through most of the film. If he squawked he was taken out briefly for a stroll by one of his parents, until he settled.

This strip of photos is from my series Photobooth 41 Year Project which documents my life from the age of 11, through photobooth photos. You can see all the posts in the series by clicking here.
