105 FUJIFILMS, 105 HOMELESS PHOTOGRAPHERS, ONE BIG CITY
For the fifth straight year, Cafe Art, an organization which “connects people affected by homelessness with the wider community through art,” is releasing a London- based 12-month calendar entitled MyLondon. In addition, they’ll be exhibiting photos from the collection on October 9-15 (dates chosen to surround World Homeless Day on October 10) at Spitalfields in London.
What makes this calendar so unique, however, is the method by which the shots were obtained.
One day in July, outside of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Cafe Art hands out 105 FujiFilm disposable cameras to individuals who currently are, or were once affected by, homelessness. These people then have five days with the camera to capture what they will. The aim, however, is not to document homelessness, but rather to allow participants to “capture the London they love.” By adding their perspectives of the city, these photographers prove that they, too–despite their socioeconomic classification–have a place they call home.
