I continue to come across altered subway posters as I travel from place to place in New York City. These posters are ripped, shredded and basically messed with which expose the previous pasted advertisements underneath. These panels then become abstract works of collage on subway platforms.
A few highlights of my collection of photobooth photos...
Ripped, marked, messed with--these posters have gone through transformations that create images that, although not necessarily pleasing to the eye, become attention-grabbing visual statements of altered public advertising posters.
Since I've always been fascinated by portraiture of all styles and mediums, I found myself collecting photobooth photographs from the 1940s through the 1960s. I discovered a guy in Berlin who sells interesting photobooth photos online. Below are a few of my favorite photobooth portraits from Germany.
