An exhibition of photographs snapped by homeless people across London is raising money for rough sleepers.
Last month organisers of the MyLondon Photo Project handed out 100 disposable Fujifilm cameras to rough sleepers, sofa surfers and others affected by homelessness at St Paul’s Cathedral.
The images were developed a week later with remarkable results.
Participant Richard Fletcher captured a shot of a flower blooming in a London gutter. He said: “I was in Charterhouse Square when I noticed this flower. Straightaway the symbolism hit me about on the one hand being homeless, but if you keep trying hard enough, you will eventually blossom.”
Every one of the pictures is for sale. The cash raised is going back to the photographers or to fund more art projects for people affect by homelessness.
Each photographer was asked to pick their favourite images and now more than 200 photos are on display.
Organisers have chosen a shortlist of 20 images which can be voted on by the public for the chance to get into the 2020 MyLondon calendar.
