Sam Harris – The Middle of Somewhere

Sam Harris

The Middle of Somewhere

Sam Harris is an uncommon man. He’s at home more than most. Taking care of his family and photographing his two daughters growing up along the way. His latest book “The Middle of Somewhere” is a visual testament to his family dedication. This is Sam’s second book on his family, the first being “Postcards From Home”. Both essays were featured here on Burn prior, so yes we are proud.

Like all of us , Sam needed help.

Our previous post on Kerry Payne Stailey is not the end of the Lucie Awards story. ceiba just became the Lucies “Publisher of the Year” and Sam’s “Middle of Somewhere” was the chosen title. ceiba is a book publisher starting 18 months ago in collaboration with Eva-Maria Kunz. This is the second book from ceiba, having published Zun Lee‘s acclaimed “Father Figure” last year. Eva teamed up with picture editor Candy Pilar Godoy for both collaborations. Eva and Candy got their start in the publishing business with my book “(based on a true story)” , BurnBooks 2012. Eva as producer and Candy as a “character” and picture editor. I am forever grateful. The two also played roles at BurnMagazine, so it’s clear the Eva/Candy team can rock the house down. Branches off the tree. Applause. 

Naturally we at Burn are pleased with all of this. After all the stated goal of Burn since Anton Kusters and I got it rolling in 2008 was to provide a platform for heretofore unknown talents at a time when traditional outlets were dying. 

Good on you Sam Harris. The book looks and feels terrific. The work in it poignant and sublime. It is at the end a true family affair.





Sam Harris is a photographer and educator. As a teenager he taught himself photography, turning his London bedroom into a makeshift darkroom. Throughout the 90’s Sam photographed portraits and sleeve art for numerous recording artists. He also worked as an editorial photographer for publications such as The Sunday Times Magazine, Esquire, The Sunday Telegraph Magazine and Dazed & Confused. The over commercialization of the music industry during the late 90’s was the catalyst for a change in direction, both personal and photographic.

Sam’s photobook Postcards from Home (a self published limited edition) has received several awards including the Australian publishing industries Galley Club Award ‘Australian Book of the Year’ 2012.
