In pictures: London through the eyes of the homeless

In July, London-based art foundation Café Art gave 100 disposable cameras out to homeless people across the city. After offering them training from the Royal Photographic Society, they asked them to take photos around the capital with the theme ‘My London’.

More than 2,500 photos were developed, before 12 were selected by a voting panel and the public to appear in a 2016 calendar. Café Art has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the calendar, with a £9 donation paying for a pre-order. It’s hoped it will raise awareness about homelessness from a personal perspective.

'All the money raised goes back into the project,' Café 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.'

More than £2,500 has already been donated, but the organisation needs to raise £4,500 in the next 23 days to meet its target. Donate here.
