Photographs taken by homeless people who were given cameras by a support group are being turned into a calendar.

People Of The Streets, a student-run organisation at the University of Nottingham, has provided several people with disposable cameras in collaboration with Kodak and Boots.

Fifteen photographers took more than 200 photos around the city over two weeks, snapping what they see to show their view of Nottingham.

Local help centres Emmanuel House and Canaan Trust also helped to develop ‘

Stories Of The Streets’, which was then turned into an exhibition at the Broadmarsh Centre.

A selection of the best photos will now feature in a new 2018 calendar which will be sold at the exhibition online.

The calendar will be on sale at the exhibition and online.

Costing £10, proceeds will be put towards winter items to help the homeless, and re-invested back into the People of the Streets project.

Project managing director, Charles Kerr said: “Lots of people have come into the exhibition to look at the photos, give donations, educate themselves and share their thoughts about homelessness in our city. This calendar will give the people of Nottingham yet another opportunity to show their support and enjoy the beauty of these images.”

The ‘Stories of the Street’ exhibition will feature photographs taken by Nottingham’s homeless community, including this one a photographer took of a fellow homeless person.

Alex Greenhalgh, operations director, said: “The exhibition runs until Christmas, and the response from local people has been amazing. However, homelessness is an issue all year round. We hope the calendar will keep people engaged well beyond the physical exhibition itself.”
