Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Daniel Boetker-Smith

The Middle of Somewhere was shortlisted for Les Rencontres d’Arles Book Award 2015, finalist at GuatePhoto Festival and ceiba won the Lucie Award for book publisher of the year 2015!

With a warmth and candour rarely seen, Sam Harris focuses his lens on his daughters’ childhood, in a place where they are free to experience the wonder of their surroundings. The trees and the shadows, the sunlit faces and the passing seasons, are movingly brought to life by his evocative photography.

This body of work spans a twelve-year period in the life of the photographer’s family, since they have boldly decided to leave the rat race in search for a simpler existence. A Travelogue insert is included in the book from the family’s life on the road in Australia and in villages in India where they lived for several years and birthed their second daughter.

Simultaneously expressing something about the meanings of love, growing up, sisterhood, family, landscape, and the rhythm of nature, Harris’ work is at once both intimate and all embracing and is a memorable and inspiring collection of images that will both please the eye and stir the soul.
