      Sydney Is a Paradise

      January 28, 2013

      Although you might be under the impression that living in Sydney, Australia is something akin to being Wolverine in a Baz Luhrmann film about roughing it in the outback—you're wrong. If photographer Craig Lundon is right, then Sydney is well on its way to becoming the depressing metropolitan hub of racial diversity and fun that New York is today:

      "We kind of have this weird paradox in Sydney, where people think it's the best place in the world and the biggest shithole at the same time. Near-derelict buildings stand next to skyscrapers in a melting pot of races, offering everything a big city has to but doesn't need to offer," he says.
