DISPOSE is a collection of photographs shot by selected individuals with single-use cameras. For the past year we have been distributing cameras around the world asking people to share a day of their lives with us. The assignment is straightforward: tell a visual story of yourself in 24 hours with 27 film exposures documenting your everyday actions and the objects that surround you. We sort through the results, edit and re-assemble a visual narrative that we then publish online at dispose.co. Our goal may be simple in its attempts to offer a rare glimpse unto the lives of others but the results are filled with surprises, and we are constantly re- questioning the meaning of the photographic image, and what defines a good photograph. We try to find a balance between the aesthetics values and the documentary strength of both the individual photograph and its relationship in a narrative spread. Celebrated photographers are published side by side with humanitarians, flight attendants, and weed dealers, in our bi-weekly in attempts to democratize analogue images in similar ways that digital photography has revolutionized these concepts.
