Cafe Art is a UK-based initiative that aims to connect the homeless with their wider community through art and photography. The project was founded in 2012, and since then they’ve hung up artwork in more than 20 cafes across London.
Back in July, Cafe Art handed out 100 Fujifilm disposable cameras to homeless people in London, connected them to photography training with the Royal Photographic Society, and asked them to shoot photos with the theme “My London.” Here’s what they captured.
Cafe Art is now running a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to launch the 2016 My London Calendar. The calendar will feature the photos alongside stories from the photographers, raising awareness in the general public about issues of homelessness from the personal perspective of those affected.
