The Ideal Passport Photo.




I have been going through my archive of the work I shot while at Fabrica and there is so much I haven't released or used for anything. This was one of the projects I piggy backed on another. I was working on an interactive display with Paulo Barcelos (who is in one of the above images) when I thought about the idea of the Ideal Passport photograph.

I am always fascinated by passport images and always wonder about the funny faces people would love to pull in font of the camera when they are taken and how it would go down if you presented your passport in a airport and the security official saw a totally obscure face. Obviously this would never happen but I thought it would be fun to illustrate.

So to the basics, the one on the left is the ideal and normal portrait as it normally is and the one on the right is the way I wish it could be.

Enjoy.
