A professional photographer in Nashville, Tennessee, Benjamin (Ben) Perlin shoots with traditional film cameras and utilizes advanced darkroom techniques to achieve specific effects in his work. In addition to his photography, Benjamin Perlin volunteers at a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, where he unloads and sorts donations and assists customers.
Habitat for Humanity ReStores play a vital role in Habitat for Humanity’s mission to make affordable, safe housing accessible for all. ReStores are home improvement stores and donation centers that offer a variety of new and used home goods, building materials, and home improvement items, all well below retail prices. Building materials and furniture are donated by contractors renovating homes, and the general public is also welcome to donate unwanted home goods and appliances. The proceeds from ReStores fund new builds and renovation projects through Habitat for Humanity efforts around the world. For more information or to find a local ReStore, visit www.habitat.org.
