These Dull Passport Photos Are Hiding Hilarious Secrets

Photographer Max Siedentopf has a new project that examines one of the most boring types of photography: the passport photo. “Passport Photos” looks at one of the most mundane and unexciting types of photography.

Heavily restricted and regulated, the official passport photo requirements include that the subject needs to face the camera straight on, needs a clear background without shadow, no fashion covering hair, no glare on glasses, no smile. It seems almost impossible for any kind of self-expression.

The series tries to challenge these official rules by testing all the things you could be doing while you are taking your official document photo.
