Highly Recommended: Dispose, a monthly publication documenting various lives around the globe with disposable cameras


We recently discovered the online publication, Dispose. Run by Bruno Levy, Alex Hollender, Arpana Rayamajhi and curated by Michael Avedon and Timothy Sullivan, Dispose distributes disposable cameras across the globe to various people and requests that they document a single day with 27 exposures. One of the pictures must be a self portrait. The idea is simple, but the results are outstanding and inspiring. Every two weeks, they showcase four individuals and their photos on their blog.

We can’t get enough of this project and had to share it. Take a look and bookmark their site. This is one you’ll want to visit again and again. Maybe you’ll even be one of the photographers they choose to showcase someday. One can dream…
