Grey Areas is a collaborative piece of work commissioned by Bristol Photofestival and  The Arnolfini, supported by Golden Key. 

5 individuals  with experience of homelessness (past or present) with complex needs, through the use of photography, explored ideas around housing and wellbeing. 

We  explored key questions and priorities through themes of home and wellbeing. How do we see people in the homeless community within Bristol and therefore, how do “we” respond to “them”? How do those in the pathway see themselves? How do those within the pathway relate to ideas of home, on a domestic level and potentially on a wider city scale?’

The work was exhibited at The Arnolfini in the summer of 2021.

This original body of work was produced through Blueprint: Housing & Wellbeing, an artistic commission by Arnolfini and Bristol Photo Festival in collaboration with Golden Key Partnership supported by ArtFund and the Arts Council England.
