Every year Cafe Art, a small social enterprise in East London, holds a contest with disposable cameras. The goal is to empower people affected by homelessness - to give them skills, confidence and eventually to earn some money by selling the photos and the annual MyLondon calendar. 100 Fujifilm disposable cameras were given out at St Paul's Cathedral, and the images are ready now.
