Series One, Throwaways

Disposable: Series One, Throwaways

The Disposable photo series is a concept by FHF creator Adel Souto.
The project uses disposable cameras, each containing a series of artistic photographs.
Later, the exterior of each camera is rendered to become an art object itself, making each piece several works of art at the same time.Within just a few years the film will deteriorate, and the camera will revert to being a single art object,
but within that time frame, the question arises as to how to save the photos without destroying the extrior artwork.

Series No. 1 (featuring artist Anthony Mangicapra)
Throwaways: 8 cameras / 25 photos each.
Adel Souto photographs 200 of his "throwaway poems" scattered throughout NYC, 25 per camera.
Anthony Mangicapra artistically rendered each camera.
The final presentation comes with the camera, set on black, acid-free paper, tied to a hardcover book containing all 200 poems, with a black ribbon.

Samples can be seen here.
