Serena W. is one of the top supporters of the project. Having already organised a massive batch of cameras being released in Singapore, she’s now on the case for taking over the UK too. Serena tells us about the five cameras she’s just released in Manchester:
FEUM 1001 – 1005 (5 cameras in total) were released on 24 March 2010 at the Society’s trip to Don McCullin’s photography exhibition: Shaped By War at Imperial War Museum North, Salford Quays (Manchester). The other 5 will be release at the society’s next trip.
Having this project run in the society was my initiation. Basically, I am from Singapore and came over to Manchester for my studies. I first got to know about the Disposable Memory Project through LomotionSG.com. As I was already in Manchester when I found out about this project, I decided to release my own cameras. Photography has been my hobby and I have been trying out various forms of it (including Lomography). The magic of film/ analogue photography never fail to amaze me. So when I got to know about the Disposable Memory Project, I was trilled! Prior to releasing the cameras to my fellow PhotoSoc members, I have already released 7 cameras if I am not mistaken (one of which have returned to the project and uploaded – Camera 246). Members who have received the cameras expressed that the idea is very interesting and there is this excitement within them. I think this is one very special thing/feel to this project. Looking forward to the return images (:
Thanks again Serena!
