Yesterday I was very excited to wake up to find that Photomovette was featured in the Independent on Sunday, in an article about Photobooths. Some of you may or may not know that, in my spare time, I run an old school, black & white photobooth, complete with chemicals. It's one of the only ones in the UK (I only know of 2 others) and it lives in a studio in Deptford. It is in full working order and has been used at events at the studio, but there is one technical hitch which is preventing us from getting it into a public space. All in good time...

A couple of weeks ago Siobhan (the other half of Photomovette) and I were approached by a journalist who was writing a piece for the Indy about the resurgance in these old machines. Cos oddly, there is a resurgance... although a lot of the time they are digital machines which have four exposures, as opposed to the boring ones in Boots which duplicate one image four times to fit to passport regulations. We were asked to be one of the case studies... I was interviewed by the lovely Kate Burt and Jean Goldsmith came to take our picture (which resulted in one of the funniest afternoons ever; I think there were 7 of us squashed inside the booth!) The article can be read here.

As soon as we get our little technical hitch sorted, we are going to be looking for a venue or public space to put it. So let me know if you know of anywhere which may be interested. In the meantime, keep up to date with when it is in use by joining our Facebook group, and following our blog. We also have a website, which can be found here.
