When I first read the story of how a photographer traveled through Asia with a limbless man, I knew I had to interview that photographer. Luckily for me and for you, my dear listeners, that photographer, Anna Tenne, graciously accepted to be my guest and to tell the story of how she decided to embark on a journey that changed her life forever.
Anna is an Australian photographer that has spent the last 10 years traveling the world. She’s had many unique experiences from living in remote Hill-tribe villages, riding ostriches, walking 25km just to eat cheese-cake and diving with sharks – always living to tell the tale. Obviously. She absolutely loves meeting and photographing people but hates wearing shoes.
As she says of her journey:
I think most people would assume that traveling South-East Asia with a man with no limbs wouldn’t exactly be easy, let alone practical, but that didn’t stop me asking quadruple amputee Chris Koch to go on a crazy adventure with me. Thankfully I did. Traveling with Chris was easily one of the most incredible and valuable experiences of my life.
Listen to my interview with Anna to discover what motivated her, what difficulties she had to face, and what great lessons she learned along the way. Duration 21m 58s.
