“Neighbours” Exhibition by Bec Lorrimer
Duckrabbit Gallery, Tuesday 1 June – Sunday 6 June 2021
“Throughout 2020, as the pandemic kept us all close to home, I noticed a rediscovery and strengthening of neighbourly bonds in my local community. Relative strangers became people I could turn to for help, guidance and friendship. Getting to know my fellow residents fuelled a desire to document them and their stories. Neighbours is the culmination of this evolving process, both social and photographic. These portraits celebrate the diverse communities of Redfern and Darlington and were made possible by the generosity of the people who welcomed me into their lives and homes.
I am humbled to have been working on Gadigal land and I pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging.”
“With thanks to all the people who welcomed me into their lives and homes and trusted me to take their portrait, City of Sydney Council, Sam I Am, Madelin Fuller, Edwina Hagon, Aden Rolfe, Harriet Connor, Pix on Location, Sun Studios, Spitting Image, Duckrabbit, Young Henrys, Poor Toms, Printhie Wines and Lyre’s Non-alcoholic Spirits”
