Personal Work :: Photobooth

These series explore various ways to display - whether playfully or seriously - environmental concerns. Rooted in photography, the series are composed of actual prints that were cut and pasted on boards, a nod to the uniqueness of a piece of art and the concept of crafting. 

Photobooth is a light-hearted series of photographs that reproduces the aesthetic of the photo booth picture-taking practice, ancestor of the infamous and now so trendy “selfie”.

Within the last 10 years, the rise of healthy eating habits saw a large number of vegetables and fruits pushed to the front of supermarkets and restaurants. Meanwhile, the expansion of social media has seen this trend become prominent even faster than any diet craze has before. This body of work intertwines both of these movements. The series playfully gives vegetables space to gather and invest within the frame of a picture the same way teenagers tend to do when getting into a photo booth - with the same sense of shyness, blossoming romance and sense of affirmation.
