Inside America’s Roaming Photo Booth: The Bosco’s 10 Best Pictures

Since launching in December 2011, The Bosco’s interactive photo booth has become wildly successful for events around the city (and around the country — they recently set up camp with an “aura” defining booth at Pitchfork in Chicago, and at the red carpet for VH1’s Do Something Awards in LA). And it makes sense: does anyone love anything more than photo booth pictures, and more specifically, flattering photos of themselves at parties?

Yes, it turns out. What they really love are pictures of themselves turned into .gifs, 3D, and video. Which is exactly what co-founders Aaron Fisher-Cohen (above, right) and Nick Fehr (left) were betting on when they first came up with the idea for their interactive booths.

“People love photos of themselves, and having a physical print is still a novelty,” says Fehr, who had tinkered around with his own photo booth project in college. “Your iPhone doesn’t print, your laptop doesn’t print. The physical aspect is still very different from what you can experience on a daily basis.”

Fisher adds, “They’re also nostalgic — yet we’re making products that combine the nostalgia and history with new technology. Attempting to push the boundaries with projects really makes it fun.

  1. Although no statistics appear to exist to prove this writers hypothesis, it is suggested that almost all supplement companies that seek to produce and market products staying with The Dietary Supplement Health insurance Education Act of 1994 become entangled using the FDA for unknowingly having items that test positive for illegal substances. Even though the FDA holds distributors of health supplements accountable when their items they market test positive for tainted substances, the fact is several organizations achieve this unintentionally without familiarity with the contaminants. Unfortunately, the FDA does not have any mechanisms to judge if these companies are intentionally tainting their items to maximize profit. The one methodology confirming intentional sale of tainted supplements occurs when evidence can be compiled the distributor is aware of the illicit substances within their products, but is constantly market them anyway.
