MacBook Street Photography is an experimental project using the Photo Booth software of Apple laptops as a point-and-shoot camera to capture spontaneous street moments.




SYNOPSIS


Candid photographs taken on the MacBook, explores a new purpose of the Photo Booth application beyond selfies and profile photo-taking, challenging traditional conventions of photography.

Not the most compact and lightweight of devices, the photographer awkwardly works the front-facing camera and composes his shots in advance to accommodate the 3-second timer. Using an unorthodox modus operandi, this is street photography as an attitude and commitment.
