We all read of Meags’ epic travels this summer, and now I’ve had a chance to add all of the new and updated photobooth locations she found to our Photobooth Directory. From Chicago to Toronto to Belgium and France, we’ve got updates on a ton of booths, thanks to her sleuthing. Links to all of the updated booths follow.
First, in North America, two new booths in Toronto and an updated booth in Chicago: The Steam Whistle Brewery, home to the only black and white photobooth remaining in Toronto, and the Gerrard Square Shopping Centre; plus a new booth at the Empty Bottle in Chicago,
Across the Atlantic, Meags confirmed, denied, reported, and recounted visits to more than a dozen photobooths. First, we’re very excited to be able to add Belgium to our list of countries with a working photochemical photobooth available to the public. Thanks to the installation of the “Derrière la Rideau” exhibition at Le Botanique, denizens of Brussels now have a lovely black and white machine to enjoy.
Installed and run by La Joyeuse de Photographie, the machine will remain at the museum now that the exhibition has moved on to Vienna.
We’ve added a few new French locations thanks to Meags’ visit. First, a gorgeous booth at Les
Rencontres d’Arles in Arles. The show ended in September, so we’ve probably lost our chance to visit, but hopefully the booth will find a new permanent home soon.
New booths can also be found at Forum des images, Batofar, La Cite de la Mode et la Design, and La Maison Rouge, plus a new booth at Citadium.
Meags also provided updates (some booths gone, some still around, some slightly changed) to the following Paris locations: Palais de Tokyo, Au vieux Saumur, Citadium Beaubourg, Citadium, Les Prairies de Paris, and Cinematheque de Française.
Thanks again to Meags for all of these updates. The rest of us have to be content to travel vicariously through her as she visits every photobooth under the sun, and we appreciate her bringing us along with her plentiful and detailed reports.
