Hi, my name is Ben Hopper and I’m a photographer working in Hackney Wick, London, where I have been given the opportunity to have an exhibition at the Stour Space gallery.
Rather than just exhibiting my own work, I have decided to show all of the collaborative work I have been doing lately.
The exhibition will be called ‘Giving Something Back’ and will consist of 3 main projects:
I want to be able to give a platform to all of this great new work. But in order to print everything in colour and mount it properly I need around £3500. This may sound expensive but this amount will allow me to use real photographic archival prints, professionally mounted. I'm asking for £2000 in hope to achieve this goal and stretch it further. £2000 is the minimum I need to make this thing a reality. If you guys help us with more money - we will simply be able to make the exhibition look better, with more work, and larger prints.
Anything you give helps. If you can't give, please share the link. I've also spent few days figuring out some epic rewards. For the first time - I can offer you an original t-shirt with my artwork. Anything you give from £5 will get you something cool. Special edition prints, shirts and even a photo-shoot with me!
THANK YOU! :) Ben

Risks and challenges
The exhibition is happening regardless if this campaign a success or not.
If it's a success, we'll be able to show the work properly; using real photographic archival prints, professionally mounted for optimal display.
If not, I will have to keep the exhibition in a low budget form. Printing less images and ONLY pictures that work in black & white. All images will be printed on simple b&w paper prints. There will be NO colour hence the majority of the work simply won't be on display!
It will do no justice to the work, but this is the main risk taken.
