At the Brooklyn Bridge (Photobooth)

At the Brooklyn Bridge (Photobooth), 2005. I constructed a photobooth that places the user in different spots of Manhattan where I have had my film confiscated, or at least told I was not allowed to photograph: the Brooklyn Bridge, the Federal Reserve building, and the United Nations building. Users are able to take their pictures in front of New York City landmarks without having to worry about having their cameras confiscated.

Clicking the film camera triggered the system to take a photograph, mask it into the background, and print the image.
