We are pleased to have Auckland Festival of Photography present the June edition of our Open Nights series inviting international guest photographer Sam Harris to discuss how a London music photographer turned his life upside down, abandoned his career and started shooting his home life and back yard. How twelve years worth of 'poetic images of his daughters unaffected childhood’ became an internationally acclaimed, award winning photobook. Sam Harris will share his fascinating story about the rollercoaster ride of making his deeply personal photobook 'The Middle of Somewhere'.

About Sam:
Sam Harris began his career in the London music industry of the '90s, photographing album cover art and editorial portraits. In 2002 Harris re-evaluated his lifestyle and photographic direction and left the UK to travel slowly with his family. During this period (mostly in India) he began the process of turning his camera inwards... In 2008 Harris settled in the forests of Western Australia, from where he shoots his on-going family diary and runs international workshops. His 2015 book The Middle of Somewhere has won a Lucie award and was a finalist in POYi, Les Rencontres d’Arles Book Award, Australian Photobook of the Year & GuatePhoto. Supported by the Australian High Commission.

Sam will also be running a workshop during his visit to Auckland in Get Loose - more information can be found by visiting the Auckland Festival of Photography website.
