In an effort to use art to help provoke positive change among homelessness, social business Café Art gave out 100 disposable cameras to people living on the streets of London and encouraging them to take photos for a series entitled, My London. The result was breathtaking with over 2,500 collected and 20 will be used in a crowdsourced art project to help better the neighbourhood.
Along with giving everyone involved a disposable Fuijifilm camera, each person was also given basic photography training through the Royal Photographic Society. The images are profound and showcase London through candid, realistic and unseen perspectives rich in color as well as black and white.
Café Art has started a KickStarter campaign to hopefully turn the images into a calendar that can be purchased with the proceeds going to help the those in need.
