Disposable photo series is a concept by artist 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 exterior artwork.
Series No. 1 (featuring artist Anthony Mangicapra)
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.
Samples can be seen here.
Series No. 2 (featuring photographer Laetitia Mantis)
Telling the Numbers: 2 cameras / 23 photos.
Photographer Laetitia Mantis took two cameras, collecting a series of numerical photos.
Adel Souto was to artistically render both cameras.
