A project by Big Hope: Erhardt Miklós / Dominic Hislop

Between July 1997-February 1998, 40 disposable cameras were given to homeless people in Budapest. Each participant was asked to take photographs of whatever they felt to be important or interesting in their everyday experience, in the knowledge that their pictures would later be viewed publicly as part of an exhibition and web site. The participants were approached on a fairly random basis in the city's metro stations and homeless shelters. When the prints were ready we recorded an interview with each photographer about their pictures. Through the support of our sponsors we were able to recompense the participants for their work.
