The Camera Amnesty is our appeal to help homeless photographers – could you donate your unwanted cameras and photography equipment to help others?
We’re very proud to be able to work with Accumulate, an inspirational charity that empowers homeless people through creativity.
We’ve supported Accumulate with photography workshops, tutoring, portfolio reviews at The Photographers’ Gallery, and with their exceptional exhibitions at The Guardian.
The work Accumulate does is life changing and we wanted to find another way to make sure these photographers can carry on developing their careers and expressing themselves through their creative skills. Can you imagine seeing the image but not being able to take the shot?
We decided to establish the Camera Amnesty (read about that moment, here).
Accumulate have been able to give cameras to those in need and develop a camera library which is accessible by homeless photographers across London. The equipment donated through the Camera Amnesty has meant that in all the courses run, everyone has been able to access equipment which is right for their needs.
Do you have a camera or photography equipment you’d like to donate?
Accumulate can accept digital and film cameras, from D/SLRs to point and shoots, camera phones, film, memory cards, bags and anything that could be of use to a photographer.
Thank you to everyone who has supported this project by donating equipment and spreading the word.
