WHY? by Deep. Deep was walking along Great Portland Street when he came across a mural by street artist Loretto. “I just saw that and I thought Yeah, this would be a good picture to just question Theresa May."

When a Brexit-related photo tops the public vote of photos taken by people who have experienced homelessness, you know it's on everyone's minds. A homeless project which involved giving 100 disposable cameras to people affected by homelessness has created an amazing exhibition which looks at the London in a different way.

The 20 photos were taken as part of a project which is an annual event in London and in went viral online, resulting in project now being run in Budapest, Sydney, New Orleans and Toronto. 

The project is funded by the sale of a fundraising calendar called MyLondon.

CAFÉ ART connects people affected by homelessness with the wider community through art. We hang artwork created in art groups run by homelessness sector organisations and hang it in independent cafes in London. We also run photography contests with disposable FujiFilm cameras.
