Arnolfini - est 1961

Bridges for Communities is a Bristol-based charity that connects people of different cultures, races and faiths in order to facilitate friendship and build understanding.

Arnolfini approached Bridges 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.
