I Gave My Neighbours a £2 Camera

I wanted us all to get to know each other better.
May 3, 2012, 7:00am

Our friend Holly, who can usually be found moaning about fashionable photography on this lovely website, lived in a housing estate in Haggerston for nearly two years without really getting to know any of her neighbours.

She thought that was kind of sad, so she sent them all a letter asking how they'd feel about her giving them a £2 camera to take some pictures on.

Tonight, she's taking all the images her neighbours took and putting them back up in the corridor of the building. In the interests of the project's initial lust for community, she told us to tell you that you're all welcome to go and have a look.

Here's a sneak preview, and if you can't make it down to Holly's, you will be able to see all of the images right here from this Friday.
