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.
