A good friend of mine recently told me about this website, www.photobooth.net which tells you of all the last remaining original photobooth locations all over the world. It’s a pretty simple concept, but a valuable one for what they refer to as a preserving the “vanishing American icon.” Simply type in your location, and track them down. The founders of the website have also taken it to the next level, and showcase really interesting interpretations of the photobooth photo by a variety of different artists.

They do have a nostalgic feel to them not just in the simple black and white photo but also in the experience of it being set carnivals or at bars. Even those Asian sticker picture machines don’t have the magic like photobooths do.
