Last Photographs in Strangers Phones

Bird in Flight correspondent went to the streets and asked people walking by to show the last photograph on their phones.

«Last Photo project» was started by San Francisco director Ivan Cash who asked strangers to share the last photograph on their phones. Previously, Cash asked passersby to share their last sent message, but in 2013 he turned to photographs. After his native San Francisco the director made videos in Detroit, Chicago, Miami, Alabama, New York, Los Angeles and London, and invited people from other countries to join his project.

Bird in Flight correspondent kept the ball rolling and went to Kyiv streets where she asked people walking by to show the last photograph on their phone.
