An analogue-based photographic film/camera exchange project.

Who are we?

OneGiantArm is a group of young creatives rooted in the South-West of England (Bristol), founded by Joe Williams and Tommy Sussex in 2010.


Working in both Digital and traditional media, we bring together diverse bodies of unique work by established and emerging artists from around the world. Our latest project at OneGiantArm is Disposable?


What is Disposable??

The idea behind the project is to send disposable cameras to amateur and professional photographers around the world to display their personal photographic style within the restraints of a disposable camera.  Once they have used the camera they post it back to us and we process the film.


By utilising the postal service this obviously slows the turnaround of the project and leaves the photographer with no opportunity to edit or select their final outcome. We believe this is an important experiment in an ever growing digital age. The resulting images will be featured in a group exhibition that we have organised for May this year to run in line with The Bristol Festival of Photography.


How will your donations be used?

We are looking for funding to process the submitted disposable camera films and the printing costs of the exhibition and a publication featuring the work of photographers involved.

We have already received submissions and these can be seen here

Another great series of images sent to us on a disposable camera from Chicago, USA by Tim Johnson.

A massive thanks from OGA to everyone who has sent us work for the show in May and stay tuned for the remaining submissions.

I would like to thank everyone who has chosen to sponsor our project. Time has nearly run out to sponsor our exhibition and publication. Just to remind everyone this kind of sponsorship is "all-or-nothing funding" so we need to reach our goal of £350 or the project won't receive anything!!!!!!!  

Thanks, Tommy

We are still currently receiving submissions for the Disposable? Project.  It’s been great to see how people have responded to the project and how each contributor has decided to use their camera.  Stay tuned for more info.

We have secured a great space for the Disposable? Exhibition at The Louisiana in Bristol.  We can't wait to process all the remaining photographic submissions and get the empty walls filled with the work that has been sent to us from around the world!

We mailed a  disposable camera to Darko Marjanović in Belgrade about a month ago and have been eagerly waiting for its return.  Within the roll of film Darko has conveyed his personal style and produced great series of images.

So far we have had submissions from America, Spain, France and Serbia among many others. Time has nearly run out to sponsor our project so get involved because as a sponsor you will recieve some fantastic rewards including limited edition screen printed OGA T-Shirts and copies of the Disposable? Publication featuring selected work from the Exhibition.

Another great submission from Jake Reinhart  who has mailed us his camera for the OGA Disposable? Exhibition taking place in May this year.  The different approaches that each photographer is using is very interesting and we look forward to proccessing the latest batch we have recieved.

We received a disposable camera in the mail this week from Victor Cobo who is based in New York.  His work could be described as theatre meets photography.   A while back we conducted an interview with him which can be viewed here.

We’ve had plenty more submissions for our Disposable? Project this week and we can’t wait to see the results from each roll of film.  If you have sent something into us recently stayed tuned this week for new additions.  We’re massively excited about the prospect of putting all of the work submitted together on the walls of the Disposable? Exhibition taking place May.
