In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Hannah Morse, curatorial intern in the Department of Photography, looks at a selection of untitled photo booth images from c. 1938–60 and reflects on the transporting effect of glimpsing others’ private moments.
