The London Sex Booth
Last year I took a year off work to finish my photographic studies in London. The urban city environment has timeless photo opportunities around every corner.
As London is a story teller herself, she showed me what is happening to her iconic red telephone booths.
Has the intruduction of mobile phones changed London’s beloved phone booths into urine stench marketing stalls for sex workers?
I personally have never used a London telephone booth to make a call in all my years in her care and I would rather ask a stranger if I can borrow their phone in an emergency.
If the nostalgic red London phone booth has lost its purpose as a communication device, then maybe its time for a rethink. How about converting them into fresh air booths for the manky summer months and heating booths for the rest of the year. Or even soundproof stress booths where you can scream your lungs out when life gets a bit too much.
