Never talk to strangers, give them your camera September 9, 2009

Posted by Patrick in Webshite.

The idea is simple: leave a disposable camera on a bench with a note tied to it telling the finder to take a roll of photos and then leave the camera back on the bench when they’re done so that the person who left it there can, well, upload them to their website. Okay, it’s not actually that simple, or rather not that common a thing to do. But Jay from theplug.net did just that.

The results are interesting – a mix of random people and places in Atlanta, Georgia. The photography is hardly groundbreaking, but its the idea of a stranger taking photos for another stranger that makes this project noteworthy. It was in fact repeated in a Tokyo park, resulting in yet another crop of stranger’s photos.

So basically what I now want to do is place a disposable camera on a bench for a stranger to find. Or better yet if someone could leave one on a bench near where I live so that I can do it. Thanks in advance.
