Today, our lives are constantly documented in numerous different ways, but one has been unchanged for decades – id photos. In passports, driving licences, travel cards and visas we always appear looking straight ahead, not smiling, framed in a tiny pale rectangle of nothingness. From a very young age, these photos are a proof of our very existence in society, and an unintentional archive of our life journey – be it a move to a new country, a new car, a new career path, or that very experimental post-break-up haircut.
