The art of disposable photography

I started Indisposable Concept as a bit of a rebellion to the throwaway culture surrounding digital imagery, and as a way to encourage people to acknowledge and embrace the everyday beauty that exists in their lives, to capture and share the stuff that matters and makes it unique. We ask participants to document their life using one roll of film from one disposable camera over a week, and then we feature the shots on our site and via our social channels.

Most of us have been lucky enough to experience the last bastion of analogue photography before digital cameras and smartphones took over. Those born from 2000 onwards will never know the dizzy highs of a well-composed image and the crushing lows of non-deliberate oversaturation.
