BRIDGES FOR COMMUNITIES : THE PATH LEADS TO BRISTOL
Dec 4, 2020 - Feb 28, 2021
Arnolfini approached Bridges for Communities to create a local response to Hassan Hajjaj’s exhibition The Path, and Bridges in turn invited a number of people involved in their work to take part in a photoshoot exploring themes of culture, identity and story. These images were captured by Bridges volunteers and graphic designers Safia and Samira Belhaj, sisters whose own journey has included life in Libya, the United States and now Bristol.
