ready for my close up #2

Electronic Instant Camera by Niklas Roy is a combination of an analog b/w videocamera and a thermal receipt printer: The camera doesn’t store the pictures on film or digital medium, but prints a photo directly on a roll of cheap receipt paper while it is taking it. As this all happens very slow, people have to stay still for about three minutes until a full portrait photo is taken.
