Indisposable is a project of the Kansas City Central Library. Library patrons experiencing homelessness were give disposable cameras and asked to use them to “document their lives, photograph what they find interesting and beautiful, or simply express themselves.” The photographs reflect on a sense of otherness and isolation while being beautiful and powerful messages of our desire to show what we see.Emily Luedtke and Jason Pearl, who are working at the Library as AmeriCorps volunteers, developed the project with the help of the library’s reference and public affairs department. I was asked to help in selecting the photographs for the exhibit which opens Friday, June 2. Indisposable will be on display in Kirk Hall at the Central Library from June 2-9.
