"I don't remember much about Iran. We left when I was 7. Two years after the revolution. I didn't speak English or understand Australia when we arrived. But a school yard is a school yard anywhere. Soon I had a camera, a Pentax K100. It was heavy, I spent weeks in the school dark room. With it I shot my friends, people I wanted to be friends with and girls. So it began. The camera was my passport and film my ticket." p98 from "Today is to Dance"
