When did you last have your portrait taken in an old-fashioned photo booth?

Take part in a four day event just outside The Photographers' Gallery, have your portrait snapped the analogue way and receive a free strip of self-portraits to take home. As part of the project, participants will be invited to engage in a conversation about photography, selfies and portraiture. Photobooth portraits will also be displayed in a window space for the duration of the project.

Show your The Real Selfie Project photobooth strip for 10% off in the café and on all film & camera equipment and in the bookshop (in-gallery only) Offer expires: Sunday 19.9.21
