The “Photo booths” series was produced between 1995 and 1997 with Gypsy children. The strictness of the machine – the gauging of the distance, the standardised lighting and background, the restrictions put on the body – brings to mind the process of taking identity photographs and questions the attitude that we normally take towards these communities. As a reaction to the prescriptive and identifying machine, the children’s faces seem to want to resist by way of affirming the uniqueness of their personality and their way of being photographed.
