In July this year 105 FujiFilm single-use cameras were handed out, with the theme "My London". Training on how to use the cameras was given by The Royal Photographic Society [The RPS] in June, and again on the day of the handout. The Cafe Art 2017 MyLondon calendar is a social enterprise initiative for London homelessness art groups and individuals who have been affected by homelessness.
