The annual MyLondon calendar, created by people who have experienced homelessness, will be unveiled at 3pm this afternoon in Spitalfields Market. In May 100 disposable cameras were given to people who are currently homeless and have recently come off the streets. The resulting calendar is beautiful - a love letter to London. Calendars will be sold by people affected by homelessness for £11.
