Would you advise someone to change their life as completely as you did?
I wouldn’t advise anyone to do what I did in the way I did it but I would advise someone to do it in a planned thought out way. Why not! It has been 12 years since I left Sydney and I have had more life experience in the past 11 years than in the first 35 years put together. The learning curve has been off the Richter scale but on the other hand my life is exciting, I live in Paris, I photograph total strangers who become friends, have assignments to photograph incredible places I would never have access to and I am constantly pushed out of my comfort zone but I learn something new every day.I would advise you if you want to radically change your life to plan it, work out an economic way of surviving it, inform yourself about as much as possible especially if you are considering living in another country as there are many surprises.
