A Sense Of Someplace is a publication created during Lindsay Perth's residency with NHS Forth Valley here in Scotland. Lindsay Perth is an artist and photographer who's still doing her residency work, dividing her time between the artist's practice and collaborative work with patients, members of the public and staff.
A Sense Of Someplace came from her desire to create something tangible and engaging from the collaborative part of her residency. This publication features a series of photomontages created as a result from the collaboration between Lindsay and the patients of Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre’s Mental Health Resource in Sauchie and members of mental health support organisation Reach Out With Arts in Mind.
The photomontages were made from anonymous holiday and family 35mm slides, which were combined with other slides to create new images and stories. These photomontages are supported with essays by Alison Brough (Arts Psychotherapist), Susannah Ramsay, Tom Steele (Director of Strategic Projects and Facilities at NHS Forth Valley), Malcolm Dickson (Director of Glasgow-based gallery Street Level Photoworks) and Lindsay.
