Distorted Portraits Hand-Printed In A Homemade Photo Booth


In the age of laser cutters and 3D printers, some artists might be better off disguising themselves as machines in the hopes of making a few quick bucks. At least that’s what artist Jayme Kalal did when he built his own Kalal-a-Vision Photobooth, which dispensed distorted photographs to the patrons who ventured into it for $5 a pop.


Although it looks like an ordinary photo booth, Kalal actually hand-printed each photograph from a compartment inside the booth, which makes each of those $5 photographs a pretty good deal!


Kalal’s recent work is currently on display in an exhibition called The Photographer is a Thief at Good Children Gallery in New Orleans.
