Product description

When Louise Hawson realised she was a stranger in her own city, she set herself a mission - to explore and photograph one new Sydney suburb a week for a year. Originally presented as a weekly blog that developed a strong following, 52 Suburbs reveals the Sydney beyond the postcard cliches of the harbour and beaches - places most tourists would never think to explore. Inspirational, adventurous and eye-opening, 52 Suburbs captures the beauty of the 'burbs' - the vibrancy, multiculturalism and community - in a refreshingly unconventional way.

I thought this was a book about pictures. However the writing is just as beautiful. I flicked through it then slowed down and read the copy. She really gets to the heart of the suburb. A very honest look at Sydney.
