In Don’t Smile Now… Save it for Later!, Thijs groot Wassink shows us London from the viewpoint of a photo booth. Go into the booth, open the curtain, feed in the money, hold up a mirror, press the button – and pop! In post offices and train stations, supermarkets and shopping centres, the booth camera captures its first uncertain view of the world outside. It sees vague figures – blurred, menacing, oblivious, suspicious. It sees shelves of gaudy merchandise, the fingers of a man, Bob the Builder. Thank you for using Photo-Me.
