Face-O-Mat is the portrait machine of the future

Say goodbye to the traditional photo booth and hello to Face-o-mat, an interactive ‘machine’ that has so far produced more than 700 portraits of smiling people. Created by Tobias Gutmann, the Face-o-mat is unlike any other photo booth because behind the cutout camera is the illustrator, Mr. Gutmann himself, turning your smile into a quirky one-of-a-kind art print.

Since its inception, the ‘social portrait-booth’ has traveled over 40,000 kilometers, from Stockholm to Milan, Dar es Salaam to Tokyo. The Face-o-mat comes with paper, pens and ink fixed inside, and, as you can see, is delivering smiles all across the globe. What a neat concept!
