Security Check (1985–1987)

Before airports were equipped with X-ray devices, security staff checked carry-on bags manually. Travellers carrying a camera were requested to release the shutter once to prove the camera was not explosive. I carried a point-and-shoot camera on me only to make photographs in this duel situation. The security staff were obliged to look at the camera while they simultaneously tried to avoid being photographed. Eight times I managed to get at least a part of a person into the frame.
