52 Suburbs by Louise Hawson

A bookish observation – My impression of a Sydney Writers Festival Event 2011: The auditorium at The Mint, one of Sydney’s early historic colonial buildings, was full to capacity when Robbie Buck bounced up on the stage. I didn’t know who he was but he seemed full of confidence, bright and energetic. He was followed closely by the author, Louise Hawson. Once seated in the comfortable lounge chairs, waiting for them on the stage, they commenced a conversation that immediately put a focus on what it was that motivated Louise to photograph the suburbs of Sydney, one each week for 52 weeks and blog the results. The results were so popular, Louise knew she “had” something. A publisher suggested a book could prove to be successful and it was.
