We Are Neighbors is a photographic, literary collaboration from local artists Hakim Bellamy and Justin Thor Simenson.
Twenty four photographs and twenty four short stories make up the We Are Neighbors book. A limited edition hardcover was printed in the spring of 2018 and sold to ten founders. The book is now available for purchase at Bookworks for $10. For more information about the project, please visit the website.
Hakim and Justin are currently working on an open edition softcover version that will be used for both educational purposes and sold to the public. It is their hope that they can use their work to create discussions about our neighborhoods (both physical and cultural) in high school classrooms, college halls, living rooms, neighborhood association meetings, and on the sidewalks.
If you would like Hakim and Justin to present to your class/neighborhood association/organization please contact them.
