Our friend and contributor Klaas Dierks has organized an exhibition of photobooth photos at a gallery in Hamburg. The show, called “Wait until Dry – Identities out of the Booth” brings together the photobooth photo collections of three artists, and opens next week.
The artists Irina Ruppert, Sven Heckmann and Klaas Dierks have collected thousands of photobooth pictures for years and present a selection of them at the „Raum für Photographie” (room for photography) in Hamburg, Germany, from the 5th of June to the 3rd of July 2008. The photos on exhibition were made in photobooths between 1928 and 1988 and originate from all over the world.
By combining the photos across time and place, the artists instill new meaning in their objects trouvée and let the imagination wander.
Raum für Photographie
Open Thursday through Saturday 12.00 – 19.30 pm
We encourage our readers in the area to attend and let us know what they see, and we’ll be posting photos from the show courtesy of Klaas next month.
