"Don't Smile...Save it for later", Shows the views from a number of London Photo booths. By using a mirror, keeping the curtain open and inserting the money, the booth takes a polariod of its own surroundings.
The result is a strange and surprising collection of photographs, in which the machine dictates both subject and timing. Placed in Urban locations of high footfall such as train stations, supermarkets, fun halls and post offices where holding a camera is usually not allowed, the project subverts this notion and offers us a playful mirrored view of London. "Putting the world in focus" as the photo booth's official website puts it.
