52 Suburbs Around the World: A year-long slow stroll through 52 neighbourhoods of the worlds most famous cities, in search of beauty and interestingness, camera in one hand, daughter in the other.
After exploring and photographing 52 neighbourhoods in her own city of Sydney, resulting in a hit blog, book and exhibition at the Museum of Sydney in 2011, Louise Hawson decided to embark on a more ambitious adventure to do the same thing in other famous cities around the world, and to do it with her 8-year-old daughter, Coco, in tow.
For just over a year, her loyal and devoted blog audience received an eye-opening weekly blog post revealing a new side to cities such as Paris and New York, far beyond the usual cliches, as well as an update on the home front of Louise and Coco.
More than 750 colour images, many in Hawson's imaginative and popular diptych style, celebrate the joy of stepping off the tourist trail. This book appeals to those who are curious about seeing 14 famous cities in a way they've never done before, as well as the inspirational story of a mother and daughter travelling around the world.
Hong Kong, New Delhi, Istanbul, Paris, Rome, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Kyoto, Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne and Sydney... like you've never seen them!
