What happens when you give 100 homeless people disposable cameras?

In July 2015, a London art group gave 100 cameras to members of the city’s homeless population.

The organization, called Cafe Art, is dedicated to empowering those affected by homelessness to express themselves through art and photography.

For their latest project, the group distributed 100 disposable cameras to homeless Londoners along with some basic photography training courtesy of the Royal Photographic Society.

Photographers were asked to take photos centered around the theme “My London.”

Of the 100 cameras, 80 were returned and roughly 2,500 photos were processed. Of those, 20 photos were selected to be included in an upcoming 2016 calendar.
