Southsiders: Portrait of a Community

Dougie McShane, Backbeat Records Southsiders: Portrait of a Community is an artistic project by Peter Dibdin using both photography and audio, in print and online to celebrate and explore perceptions around the identity of the Southside community of Edinburgh, Scotland. Thirty-eight people who live, work or have a connection to the city's Southside area have generously given their time to be photographed by Edinburgh based photographer Peter Dibdin in locations holding a special significance for them. Each participant has also recorded the audio story behind their portrait to uncover the moving, inspirational and significant contribution the Southside makes to the history and heritage of Edinburgh. All 32 portraits and their audio narratives can be viewed at http://www.edinburghsouthsiders.co.uk

I have a new exhibition up in Edinburgh where Buccleuch Street meets West Cross Causeway, in the street so open 24 hours a day for the next four weeks.  You can view all the images online at edinburghsouthsiders.co.uk or if your lucky you can pick up a free publication in local venues in the city.
