The process of having one’s identity photograph taken is usually considered a mundane yet necessary chore toward obtaining a passport, driver’s licence, or other photo documentation. It may represent the most creatively void of all forms of photography, each image requiring a close-up view of an expressionless face. But for Martina Bacigalupo and Émilie Régnier, the ID photo provides a rich source of inspiration.
