photo booths in L.A.???

i'm embarking on a new project and was wondering where i might find a classic photo booth(s) in the L.A. area. i'm talking about the basic ones with simple curtain back drops, in either b/w or color. NOT the digital ones with cheesy backgrounds..

any help would be greatly appreciated.
note: call for submissions for this project will follow.

i think there will only be a few requirements..
1. you must have a voice (and a device to record it with via mini or cassette tape recorder)
2. 1 photo booth strip image containing a portrait of entrant
3. and a web blog

gonna take some fine tuning though :D

Oh, I thought you meant an art call, like a mail art call, just sending inspired paper-pieces (or image-files) in. Sounds INTERESTING though, I'll keep an eye out for the final product.

yeah, it'll be like sending in the ingredients to an art piece, which i'll assemble..
i hope enough people feel like participating!!

Wow, sounds very 3-dimensional.
I can't wait to see what you come up with!

it will be sculptural, you're right. i'll be placing cassette players inside 2nd hand purses (playing loops of entrants reciting a journal post of their choice) and embellishing and painting the exterior. working series title: 'people purse on'

my only issue is, i don't really have a way of reimbursing people for the materials. (depending on how many people respond..) i'm thinking of giving each person who participates a small original mixed media piece as payment. still working out the kinks, but i really wanna get this started. i got ants in my pants!

there's an old style photo booth at Union Station and that's within walking distance of my place!
Union Station is the main subway and commuter train station in toronto.it's a lovely old station.the last time i looked the photo booth was still there.
this is a really good idea you have!
i would be honoured to be a part of it :)
i will gladly conspire with you !! conspire sounds like so much more fun than collaborate, no? :D
please email me with all the details when you get them hammered out.

i have a partner in crime!!! we, too, have one in our union station..seems that people want their photo taken before or after travel, go figure?

i'll probably be posting and emailing people within the week with all the details. thank you SO MUCH!! i wouldn't be able to do this without cool, creative people like you!!!!

I have this gut feeling that I won't be seeing Becky much, once the photo booth project gets into full swing.
And I think I better start putting all the extra quarters we have aroound into a photo booth piggy bank account.

Its subtle if someone else suggests it for ya... so it can be like you might not want it, but I just *think* you might? Don't worry, I got your back. ;)
