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.⁠

‘Neighbo(u)r Gallery’
Friday, the 13th of September
5-8pm, 61 Edward St, Perth
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.
