PHOTOBOOTH PROJECTS

Duke Photobooth Project

Mark Pike and Blaise DiPersia (2004)

WEBSITE

After spending some time studying in Spain, Mark Pike returned to Duke University and had an idea. He and a friend would buy a used photobooth, put it in the student union, then collect the pictures and compile them as part of a documentary project. More than 500 pictures later, the project ended, but the booth remains in the Duke Student Union.

Unfortunately, the project website only displays 14 images. It would be nice to see the project in its entirety.

Mark provides more context for the project in a recent blog entry.
