Do I really look like this?
Our passport (or identity card) photo is the photo we show to the largest number of different people during our lives. But how happy are we with our photo? Do we make an effort to get a good one? According to research by the US printer company Lexmark, the answer varies according to nationalities. It seems that the Italians are the most embarrassed about their passport photo (21% said they didn’t like showing it to other people). On the other hand, 98% of Norwegians said they were happy with their photos. And the French spend most their time trying to get the perfect photo (sometimes spending an hour in the photo booth!).
We asked three British media celebrities how they felt about their passport photos…
MICHEL WINNER (film director)
“I used to be very proud of my passport photo,” said Michel Winner. “For more than forty years I looked like an elegant film director.” But recently Michel renewed his passport and took a new photo in a photo booth. ‘Now I look like a drug dealer,’ he says.
RUTH ENGLAND (TV holiday show presenter)
Ruth England spends her life travelling and showing her passport photo to passport officials around the world. She confessed, “Once I had a passport photo where I looked really hideous and so I deliberately “lost” my passport and got a new one. For my latest passport, I took several photos and chose the best one. I quite like it. I’ve had much worse ones.”
TOBY YOUNG (author and journalist)
