The Common Camera Project is a social art project distributing hundreds of disposable cameras around the world.

1. Take a pic of something that inspires you
2. Pass the camera on to someone you trust
3. If you’re last, mail the camera back to us

Funded on Kickstarter (during beta!), cameras were mailed to almost 30 states and internationally. Participants can check-in a camera’s location and tell their story at commoncam.org.

Common Cams have been spotted as far as Alaska, Kenya, India, Brazil, Vietnam, and Morroco.
