Homeless people were given cameras to document London – these are their photos

Each year since 2013, the MyLondon Photo Project has handed out 100 single-use Fujifilm QuickSnap cameras to London residents who are either currently homeless, have experienced homelessness in the past, or are at risk of becoming homeless due to addiction or mental health issues.

Along with these cameras is a simple direction: take photos to document your lives.

This year – including the previous 15 months due to Covid’s impact on the project – the theme was ‘beautiful London’.

The resulting photos then form a calendar, which is sold to raise funds towards the project, training individuals in photography and giving them 50% of the profits from the sale of their photographs.

All 100 photos will also be shown in an exhibitionin the Minet Library in Brixton, London, and sold online through the Cafe Art website.

Ahead, take a look at a selection of the photos captured this year.
