Photos Of Strangers

Inspired by a similar idea in Atlanta early last year, a writer left two disposable cameras on park benches in Brooklyn and Manhattan. With just a note telling people to take any photo they like and her hope that someone wouldn't run away with the cameras she left them for the day.

On returning she found the cameras exactly as she's left them, with no exposures left. The developed photographs are an interesting slice of city life across one day.
