It is the norm for a place to be visually defined by its centre. But a place is more than that, wider. Beyond the World Heritage Site there is Edinburgh, too: contemporary, present, vital. Documenting the city’s western suburbs is not meant to supersede the better known Edinburgh of the city centre. Why replace one absolute for another. Exploring these neighbourhoods is to offer an accompaniment to what we currently see. To expand Edinburgh in our minds-eye: to widen the visual narrative and representation of the city.
