Arts Monday’s Jane Raffan interviews Louise Hawson, the photographer behind the 52 Suburbs blog and book.

How well do you know your city? How far do your notions about community extend beyond your immediate neighbourhood?

Louise Hawson woke up one day and realised she was a stranger in her own city. And then she set herself a mission:  to explore and photograph one new Sydney suburb a week for a whole year.

At the heart of the blog and the book is the portrayal of ‘beauty in the burbs’ captured through Louise’s photography, which celebrates the vibrancy, multiculturalism and community of Sydney’s localities in a refreshingly unconventional way.
