THE DISPOSABLE PROJECT:
From May 11th to July 20th of 2011, Raul Guerrero embarked on a communal photography project with the Newlands area of Moshi, Tanzania. Collaborating with Born to Learn, a program that gives low-income children the opportunity to receive an education, he provided 100 disposable cameras to Alex Charles, Jenifer Wilson, John Leo, Kamili Kalist, Peter Michael, Petro Ngowi, Samson Modest, Sebastian Simon, and Stanley Felix. Teaching the students basic photography skills, Raul developed creative methods for them to share their stories by documenting their everyday experiences. Working as a collective, these nine students bring the faces of their community to you.

The Disposable Project is their story.
