Homeless People Were Given Cameras, And The Photos Are Truly Stunning

By

When it comes to photography, the possibilities are endless.

In July, a UK-based art community called Cafe Art came up with a unique way to use photography to help the homeless.

According to Bored Panda, Cafe Art gave 100 cameras to homeless people around London.

The group asked the homeless to use the cameras to capture the world around them while keeping the overarching "My London" theme in mind.

Prior to shooting, each participant went through a basic training class held by the Royal Photographic Society.

The end results? They'll blow you away!

As a matter of fact, 80 of the 100 disposable Fujifilm cameras were returned with stunning, breathtaking photos. The photos are so good, Cafe Art started a Kickstarter to fund a 2016 My London Calendar to use the photos.

The Kickstarter account managed to raise nearly $6,000 so far with the intended crowdfunding goal set at $7,053. If achieved, the proceeds collected from the calendars will be used to help the homeless.

Check out some of the photos.
