08 Mar The Italian Project

My name is Suzanne Emily O’Connor, I’m Scottish and the most exciting change I’ve experienced recently has been picking up my life and moving it to another country, for love but of course also for the adventure. I had lived in London for nearly 4 years and the city just wasn’t fulfilling me anymore. Although there’s always something fun to do in London, always some place new to drink a £10 cocktail, it felt like I was doing the same thing over and over again. It would get to the end of the month and I’d have no money left to show for all the fun I’d had. So, in January 2019, I moved from London to Lake Garda in Italy with my boyfriend, Matteo.

At the moment I make my living here in Italy teaching English, getting a job in anything else let alone something as specific as Photography in a country where you can’t speak the language wasn’t plausible. I’m learning to speak Italian very slowly (it doesn’t help that everybody I know speaks English, most didn’t have an English speaking friend before me so they love the practice and it’s literally my job to speak English) and while I do that my favourite pastime is of course, photography.
