Francisco Moura Veiga on Interview with Annebella Pollen on the Typology of the Photobooth
18 May, 2021
Annebella is not an architect, she is a photography historian, researcher, and lecturer. This helps to give background to my surprise at how sharp and precise her takes on the typological analysis of photobooth are in this text. Without neglecting the sharing of the information specific to her background, Annebella expands on the formal, material, and functional aspects of a booth – the common turf of the architect – with a depth and clarity I have rarely experienced in my time as editor of architectural publications. This text was for me an awakening of sorts and remains a stark reminder of how other, non-architect eyes and voices can, at times, better see and speak about architecture.
