Inside Out Photobooth

The Inside Out Photobooth trucks bring the printers directly to the streets – allowing the public to participate instantly and for free! Participants enter the Photobooth and our camera snaps their portrait. Within one minute, a black and white poster is printed. Participants then take the posters to paste them in a public space.
