Dispose

Thursday, December 13, 2012


You know how that one time I talked about how if you're walking around at night how it is fun to look in to people's windows to check out what their lives are like? I stumbled across this online photography magazine that also fulfills this weird spying habit but I guess in a less creepy way...

Dispose magazine offers people around the world a disposable camera and they are to take pictures throughout one day. Four people are then published in each issue. When I read about it I was all OH I'LL SEND SOME IN NEED VOLUNTEERS??? and then I realized, with contributors like weed dealers, artists, DJ's, fashion designers...I'd need to up my game a little to lend them some credibility. But, super cool concept - interesting photos.......and I get a glimpse in to random people's lives....I love it.
"We believe that people want a glimpse into the lives of others, it seems to fulfill a curious human characteristic. When we look at contemporary forms of media, whether it be through social media, blogging or even reality TV, people seem to have a major interest in the uncensored lives of others"
-editor, Bruno Levy (he backs me up!)
(quote extracted from article on Cool Hunting)
I've been getting my kicks from Real Housewives episodes and my neighbors are boring so I welcome anything that can be deemed as a little more cultural ;)

That's really cool! I feel like this is the real kick in the pants I need to strap a camera to my cat too. I bet they've never even featured a cat!

What Diana said.

And I'd pay someone to get a peek into the lowrider neighbor's window. I'm convinced he's a skinhead gang member. FOR REAL.

Kristen said...

Ahhh this is really fun! I totes want to do this as well. Although, my photos probably wouldn't be as interesting either!

Wendy said...

We have a lot in common (Real Housewives and boring neighbors... And possibly taking a passing glance into others windows :) ).

I think this publication is right up my alley, thanks for posting!

PS- my boyfriend's b-day is the 18th. Sag/Cap folks are cool!

What a cool concept. It's one of the reasons why blogging is so great too - you get a little glimpse into other people's lives.

Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm
looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Haha, I'm watching the Real Housewives whilst I'm browsing blogs. It's my favourite show - not ashamed to admit it.

haha, how true ... why do we always want to know more about people's lives, especially Realtiy TV. That's the real addiction for most people it seems. Interesting concept! Have a great weekend. xo :)
