Some nice things nice people have said about the book:
“It’s beautiful! Was on my doorstep tonight. It made me smile and laugh and even shed a little tear, and I’ve really only read the intro and flicked through the photos. Congratulations to you and Coco. You should be thrilled!” Sherrill Nixon
“Got mine yesterday and read it from cover to cover last night. Forgot dinner till about 11pm, when I finished. Love it to bits. Looking forward to reading it again over the weekend . . . and more adventures from Louise & Coco.” Peter J Rogers
“It is quite overwhelming …even more wonderful than I expected. Congrats. You can be justly proud of a unique work.” John Swainston
So what’s the book about?
If you’re not familiar with my project and have no idea what this book is about, here’s some blurb for you:
52 Suburbs Around the World: A year-long slow stroll through 52 neighbourhoods of the world’s most famous cities, in search of beauty and interestingness – camera in one hand, daughter in the other.
Hong Kong – New Delhi – Istanbul – Paris – Rome – Berlin – New York – Los Angeles – Tokyo – Kyoto – Auckland – Wellington – Melbourne – Sydney – Like you’ve never seen them!
Hello! After exploring and photographing 52 neighbourhoods in my own city of Sydney – in search of ‘ordinary’ beauty and interestingness – I decided to do the same thing in other famous cities around the world. Only this time, I’d be doing it with my 8-year-old daughter. I had to wonder, would it all end in tears?
SNEAK PEEK – some sample pages:
Aside from the images and weekly updates based on the blog, the book has some extra dimensions:
• Back story to some of my favourite images – what happened in the moments leading up to taking the shot and an insight into how I go about approaching people I want to photograph
• Details about the travel side of the project – eg what we packed, where we stayed, etc
• There’s even a Q&A session where I attempt to interview myself!
• New images that weren’t on the blog.
