Founded in the 1960s, Fotomat was a photo development drive thru kiosk. These huts were designed and placed in large parking lots to accomodate cars driving up to drop off and pick up film.
At its peak around 1980, there were over 4,000 Fotomats. However, with the introduction of digital cameras, print services eventually became obsolete thus shutting operations.
Many former Fotomat huts still exist, several having been converted into drive-thru coffee kiosks.
Materials used: styrene, cardstock, foam board, acrylic paint.
