Photographs made by homeless people

100 homeless people were given cameras and asked to take pictures of the city.

In order to allow homeless people in London to express themselves through art and photography, employees of the British Art Cafe in July of this year handed them 100 disposable cameras. All the participants were taught basic rules of handling the camera. From 80 cameras that were returned has been viewed 2500 images, but only 13 will be included in the calendar “My London” in 2016.
