'Photobooth' by Zachary Proctor is a collection of 100 paintings depicting all types of people in different poses.
This Utah artist paints an impressive array of portraits illustrating real people, some made-up and others deceased. The collection of paintings includes people playing instruments, tennis players, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and many more.
It's titled 'Photobooth' because of Proctor's profile snapshots of his subjects. It's evident that these finished paintings are made with paint and a brush; however, the way they are painted shows off a more modern aesthetic. The backgrounds and types of borders Proctor use in these portraits share the the same effects that are offered in Apple's Photobooth program. This creates a really interesting mashup effect between paintings and technology.
