A while ago I started following the excellent photo blog 52 suburbs by Louise Hawson. She is a Sydneysider who decided to a) turn her interest in photography into a full-time passion and b) discover her own home town in the process. For one year she travelled to one suburb per week,- here’s a video from her appearing at Creative Social and a previous post about her project.
By going out into the ‘burbs, the less fashionable places, she lets us see the humanity and diversity that sometimes escapes us. After turning this fantastic project into that an exhibition and a book she is now taking it further under the title “52 Suburbs Around the World “. And you might be interested in supporting her via her Kickstarter page. Watch the video below for more.
