The Long Way Home

Photo Booth Sunday

Jeff and I spent this morning working on our photo booth project. We had 3 props which we smuggled into the Warhol Museum via our Pan Am flight bag: an old telephone; a bunch of plastic grapes; and a creepy clear mask that Jeff bought at a Halloween store for fifty cents. We orchestrated the photos from my journal notes. There are 10 seconds between each frame in a photo booth, so getting these shots was challenging at times.

We tried to recreate the photo of my parents in Niagara Falls. I think we did a pretty good job.

I’m especially impressed that you used a Pan Am bag for the smuggling. Very cool!

It was a little tough, but we managed it through the hip Warhol crowd!

Love the “mock parents!”

A few years ago a friend and I made photos at that booth at the Warhol, but I’ve lost them. That’s a real shame because she was hilarious.

Hi Lizzie,
Thanks for reading!
The Warhol has one of the best photo booths I’ve come across – the photos are so contrasty.
