100 Homeless People Were Given Disposable Cameras And These Are Some Of The Amazing Results

1
This July, Cafe Art, a UK based initiative that allows the homeless to express themselves through art and photography, gave 100 Fujifilm disposable cameras to the homeless in London. Basic training was provided by the Royal Photographic Society, and then the camera recipients were asked to take photos with the theme “My London.”

Eighty of the one-hundred cameras were returned and around 2,500 photos were developed. 20 photos were chosen by judges from Fujifilm, Amateur Photographer, the London Photo Festival, Christie’s, and Homeless Link. Presently, there is a Kickstarter campaign to turn some of these photos into a 2016 calendar

“All the money raised goes back into the project,” Cafe Art says, “either to pay for the printing of the photographs and calendar, rewarding the winning photographers, buying art materials for art groups affected by homelessness or helping individuals attend art courses.”

“We have several goals: helping people affected by homelessness to be empowered, not only through photography and art, but through connecting with the public. The calendar also has a goal of telling stories from individuals who are affected by homelessness, thereby raising awareness in the general public about issues from a personal perspective.”

“All the money raised goes back into the project, either to pay for the printing of the photographs and calendar, rewarding the winning photographers, buying art materials for art groups affected by homelessness or helping individuals attend art courses. Art is seen as a major way for people to recover from the trauma of being homeless.”

長く生きていると自然と対話できるようになる。ノルウェーの高齢者たちが自然の妖精となっていく世界を表現した写真「Eyes as Big as Plates」

no title


 もしおとぎ話のように木や山、岩など自然と人間が会話できるとしたら?もし自然が人間に語りかけてくる世界があるとしたらどうだろう?

 そんなアイデアから誕生したのが写真家のリイッタ(Riitta Ikonenand)さんとカロリーネ(Karoline Hjorth)さんの作品「Eyes as Big as Plates(皿と同じくらい大きな目)」だ。

 人間が自然と対話することができるとしたら、自然を見続けながら長い年月を生きてきたおじいさん、おばあさんたちだろう。

 そう考えた二人はノルウェーの高齢者をモデルに「妖精の世界」を表現した肖像写真シリーズを完成させた。

戦いの果て、傷つきボロボロとなった地域のボス的存在の猫。保護されて生まれて初めてのやすらぎを得る(カナダ)

barney-6 [www.imagesplitter.net] (1)

 
 今年1月末、カナダのモントリオールにて1匹の猫が保護された。

 どうやら長いこと野良猫として路上で生きてきたらしいこの猫は、度重なる猫との闘争や他の動物たちとの戦いで体は傷だらけ。

 更にカナダの厳しい冬を過ごしてきたこともあり、生きているのが不思議なくらい、ひどい健康状態にあった。
