See What Happens When you Give 100 Homeless People Disposable Cameras

See What Happens When you Give 100 Homeless People Disposable Cameras

London-based art group Cafe Art gave 100 homeless people disposable cameras, and asked for photos to enter into their annual calendar contest. The results are spectacular.

Of the 2,500 photos submitted, 20 were chosen for the 2016 calendar, which is available for purchase on the group’s Kickstarter page. Funds go directly back into the project, which aims to help people recover from the trauma of homelessness by gifting them with the opportunity to express themselves artistically.

Here are some of the winning images:
