through our eyes project: how the homeless see
Inspired by Cafe Art in London, Spartanburg, SC gave 100 disposable Fujifilm cameras to people who lived on the street, in a local shelter or were otherwise affected by homelessness. Their goal? To tackle homelessness in a different way by teaching and enlightening people of what the world of homelessness really is. After the cameras were returned, the Through Our Eyes Project picked the top 20 pictures to be put on auction at the end of the month. Proceeds will go to local organizations helping with the cause.
Below are the twenty pictures along with the name of the Artists and a blurb provided by each of them. Scroll over them to read.
This project is truly inspirational and important. The photographs themselves are beautiful and emotional. Check out their website and see how else you can help!
