Photo Booth

Unknown photographer. Photo-booth self-portraits, 1940s

MoMA recently showed a new acquisition of forty-four photo booth pictures of an anonymous woman. This cheerful, attractive woman documented her changing appearance, which she obviously took pride in, to create a wonderful archive of her life. It is a form of extended self-portraiture, like autobiography.
