Local PADC member Ben Wright, Creative Director and all-round Legend at Pretty–Soon® and 823 (which he co-founded with Perth multi-disciplinary artist Ta-ku), has created Neighbo(u)r – a collaborative art project that invited 200 photographers around the world to take portraits of people in their community on a single roll of expired 35mm film. 200 participants from Bangkok to Brooklyn took part, shooting portraits of their neighbours on the same batch of expired 35mm film.
The exhibition will be shown exclusively in Tokyo, Sydney, Auckland… and Perth! 823 will be hosting a large scale gallery in their warehouse to share these images and stories with the Perth community. Neighbo(u)r Journal – a 60-page newspaper publication – will also be released on the night, along with a limited capsule of apparel and accessories.
