your invite to the book launch and exhibition opening

Without further ado...



I am crossing all my fingers that you're free and can make it on Saturday May 14. 
Because as exciting as the book launch and exhibition are, I'm just as excited at 
the thought of meeting the people who helped to make 52 Suburbs such an 
amazing experience - my virtual travelling companions - you! Especially if you've 
been following the blog for a while and perhaps left the odd comment from time
to time - it would be just wonderful to put name to face.

I'll be giving a bit of a talk and then it'll be up to the gallery space for a spin around 
the 52 suburbs followed by a spot of avo tea and a book signing.
 
I really do hope you can make it.

  4. Jodie - Thanks so much! And yes, it is pretty amazing to think back to when it was Week One and just an idea.

    Ally - Oh please can you let Bernie know she's in print! I wish I'd taken her details so I could've contacted her.

  16. Wishing you all the best for a cracker launch Louise! Wish I could be there in person, however the commute from Boston is a killer. Your Redhead invitation lives up to the endlessly amazing eye for matching that I have come to enjoy most from your images. All the best, cheers, Mitch

  26. Hi...I'm from Queensland, and was in Sydney over the weekend. Soooo disappointed I couldn't plan my trip to co-incide with your opening!! It's actually my 40th that day, so I'll be busy up here. I would have loved to see your work in print. I'll be ordering my copy of your book as a present to myself! (will there be any 'extras' signed we could purchase??) Congratulations!

  27. Louise! It's the other Manly Louise here. Just reading your book now and it's utterly fantastic! Just as beautiful in hard copy and so pleased to see the toilet rolls there! Congrats. All your hard work shows in full fabulous colour!
    Looking forward to seeing the exhibition and hope to make the opening!

  28. Ben - I'll try!

    Marcus - The Museum of Sydney is a fantastic place and ideal for a celebration of this city. I feel very lucky.

    Fiona - What a bugger! Happy Early Birthday and what a great present! I'm more than happy to sign books but don't know how to organise it if you're ordering. If you're back in Sydney soon, please contact me and we can organise a signing then maybe.

    Louise from Manly - So thrilled you like it. And how could I leave the Toilet Rolls out!! I really hope you can make the opening. You were one of people who kindly allowed me to photograph them and I'd love to have as many of you as possible there at the culmination of it all.

  35. I have followed your adventure since Suburb 1, and have been continually astounded by your skill and incredible perception.
    Before I had a chance to order the book, my son and daughter-in-law gave me a copy as a birthday present. I couldn't have asked for a better present. Every photo is a unique tile in the mosaic of life.
    Congratulations!

  39. Today is the day!! Congrats on the exhibition opening. I'm heading for the train now. HATE the train trip, 2 hours of tragic, but I'll have your book with me and I'll be seeing your work at the Museum today. Enjoy this special day.
