Inside Leaving A Disposable Camera in the Park
Share this post
Last Saturday, we spent an afternoon with project creator Katie O'Beirne, a young lady with a very simple idea that has turned into a very big adventure — leaving a disposable camera in the park. Katie buys a camera, secures it to a park bench with twine, and then simply waits to see what pictures random passer-by will take. The endeavor has quickly grown from a local experiment into an international phenomenon, with disposable cameras being placed in public spaces as far away as Stockholm and Tokyo. The results, which are as varying, diverse and kooky as you'd imagine, can be found on Katie's New York Shots tumblr.
Watch our video (above) for a glimpse of our day with Katie, and check out a few of the photos that were captured (below). We hope you enjoy!
