Softcover in cloth bag, numbered edition of 600, 94 photographs, 2 inserts, 48 photographs, post-its and notes.

In a digital world saturated with consumerism, The Middle of Somewhere brings a voice of an unaffected childhood in a remote corner of the world, the Southwest of Australia.
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.
 
It is the mark of a true artist to take the ordinary and discover within it something extraordinary. Sam Harris captures fleeting moments of domesticity and creates from them the timeless and the iconic. – Alasdair Foster, Curator and Writer
 
Many dream of escaping the city – but few actually do it and even fewer do it so boldly. Since leaving London, he has slowly and carefully recorded his family’s adventures on film; the everyday images are intimate, loving, funny, fascinating and, best of all, spontaneous. –  Amy Raphael, for The Sunday Telegraph Magazine
