We are giving fifty homeless people their own disposable cameras for a week. The outcome is going to be truly amazing.
What is 'Indisposables'?
Indisposables is a project I came up with while I was driving through San Francisco's mission district. I just watched all of the homeless people and wondered "I wonder what they see". So, what better way to find out than through the lens of a camera!
We will be giving fifty homeless people disposable cameras for three days. They will be able to take pictures of whatever they feel is important for the world to see.
We are then going to develop and publish the photos on a website. The website will feature all of the thirty people that took the photos, along with a bio for each one of them.
The final and most important part of this project is we are going to publish a hard-cover picture book featuring all of the pictures taken. Allowing the world to see that their is more to these people than meets the eye.
The results are going to be amazing, and I am so happy that I get to share my idea with all of you.
What is the goal of this project?
I think the goal of this project is simple. It's to shine a light on the homeless community. It's to show everyone that their is more than meets the eye, and what better way to do that than with photography.
This is where you all come in!
Creating a project like this is obviously not free, so that is why I am here on Kickstarter. I need all of your help, even if it is just friendly support!
Since I am publishing this book on my own their are all sorts of costs in order to make this happen!
The funding will go towards...
and much more!
So how about it Kickstarter, help me make my idea come to life!

I think with this project there is a lot of potential. But then again, there is a lot of potential for problems. I think the biggest problem we might face is not being able to find the people we give the cameras to. The way we are preparing for that is by giving more disposable cameras than we expect to receive back. If we receive all of them, then great! But if we don't, then we planned for that and it won't be a big deal.
