THE PHOTOBOOTH BLOG

The Philadelphia City Paper art roundup makes a brief mention of Liz Rideal‘s new show “Above and Below Ground,” which opened recently at Gallery 339 in Philadelphia. “British artist Liz Rideal’s stark photo-booth images of plants and flowers are on view.” Some of Liz’s work can be seen on her website.

UPDATE: Edith Newhall writes a review of Rideal’s work in the Philadelphia Enquirer:

The photo booth is a strange place. It’s secretive, claustrophobic, and must be a kind of heaven for the narcissist, like a guest bathroom with an immense mirror.

And let’s not forget the thrill of instant gratification. No wonder Andy Warhol, that most voyeuristic of artists, was among the first to explore its potential. It is also a relic of our futuristic coin-operated past, like the juke box, the phone booth, the automat (which originated in Philadelphia) — 20th century inventions that were intended to make life more convenient for all. This is the nostalgic photo booth, the one that Liz Rideal has been using as her studio of sorts for the last 20 years.

If any Photobooth.net readers are in the Philadelphia area, please stop by the show and let us know what you think.
