Southsiders: Portrait of a Community is an artistic project by professional photographer 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 professional 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
