In the foreword to American Photobooth, David Haberstich, head of photographic collections at the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, writes that American Photobooth "virtually defines the art or the aesthetic of the photobooth.... [Goranin] has rescued from oblivion... many amazing self-portraits created by amateurs confronting themselves in the fleeting privacy of a humble, sometimes tacky photobooth...."

David Haberstich, curator of photography for the Smithsonian's Archives Center, met with Ms. Golding in November 2008 to view her collection while it was on display at Mississippi College.
"Ever since Ms. Golding offered her Katrina project to our museum, and I [saw] her work, I have been deeply impressed by the single-minded, heroic dedication of this talented photographer,"says Haberstich.
Although the Smithsonian does not have a particular mandate to collect images of every state, Haberstich believes that a national collection should strive for balance in collecting photographs from various regions of the country. Other curators in the Museum had previously collected artifacts and photographs related to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, but Haberstich agreed with Ms. Golding that it was also very important to preserve, on a national level, evidence of Mississippi's harrowing experiences with the storm.

"A number of inventors were working on photographic processes at the same time," said David Haberstich, curator of photography at the National Museum of American History.
"Daguerreotypes are still collected today and prized for their high quality and silvery appearance," Haberstich said.
"A lot of people have written about the democratization effect that photography had," Haberstich said.
"The daguerreotype sort of began that by making photos available to more and more people," he added.
Most people simply chose to present themselves as serious, rather than frivolous, according to fashions of the era, Haberstich explained.
"The mercury fumes may have shortened the lives of some of the daguerreotypists," Haberstich said.
"The daguerreotype process itself turned out to be a dead end, because each image was unique," Haberstich said.
