Sam Harris: The End, the Beginning and the Middle of Somewhere

West Australian based photographer Sam Harris independently published his photo book, “The Middle Of Somewhere” with Ceiba Foto. It won multiple awards including the Australian Photobook of the Year 2015 People’s Choice Award. This blog post outlines Sam’s experience with self publishing and trade publishing a photography book.

The End refers to the end of Sam’s career as a commercial photographer in London, the Beginning to his new life free from a regular day job, to fatherhood, and a 12-year journey through India to Western Australia. And the Middle refers to The Middle of Somewhere, Sam’s personal photo project that grew into an independently published book that won multiple awards including a Lucie Award 2015, and most recently the People’s Choice for the Australian Photobook of the Year Awards 2015.
