New York Shots

Katie O'Beirne has an idea so simple it's downright brilliant. She leaves a disposable camera in the park, tied to a park bench with a twine, and then waits to see what develops.

She posts the wonderful photos taken by random strangers on her tumblr blog New York Shots - via Kickstarter blog (with video interview of Katie)

Thanks, Belled27. That's my website that you linked. I did the experiment in Atlanta, Tokyo, and Belize. After I published the results online, Neatorama covered yet another NYer's experiment two years ago: http://www.neatorama.com/2009/02/28/photos-of-strangers/

I remember seeing the strangerphotos quite some time ago and thinking it was a fun and cute project. I find it unfortunate this girl has made a money making kickstarter project out of it without even attributing the original idea. :(
