100 Cameras Were Given To The Homeless And This Is What They Photographed

100 disposable Fujifilm cameras will be given out to people who are living on the street, in a local shelter or are otherwise affected by homelessness. Unlike any project before, the homeless of Spartanburg, SC will have an integral hand in helping expose the issue of homelessness rather than merely being the problem that is trying to be solved.

Through Our Eyes is bigger than a social experiment. It’s greater than an art piece. It’s more important than an outreach. This project is a lifeline. The photographers will be equipped with the tools to tell their story. They will be encouraged through a word of hope. The community will be engaged to support those who work with the homeless.
