My high school German is pretty rusty, and I never could understand Schweizerdeutsch very well, but the images in a Schweizer Aktuell news report about Swiss photobooths say it all. An accompanying article about the “Fotokisten” being “endgültig Geschichte,” or “finally history,” has more to say about the situation. If any intrepid readers would care to offer a translation, we’d appreciate it.

We’ve got more stills from the piece here.

Artist Irene Stutz’s fantastic site We Miss You pays tribute to these Swiss booths, and offers a preview of a book with photos and a historical account of the history of booths in Switzerland. We’ll post more on the project and on this story as we find out about it.
