Artist's Description

This is Saleem. He and his family are immigrants to Australia from Sudan. They came here to make a new life but life seems not to be the dream they hoped for here.

He wants to be a pro photographer or maybe a bricklayer and take some skills gained in Australia back to his homeland and try to make a new life there.

I met Saleem while photographing the streets of Melbourne in December 2006.

In this shot he posed for me on the hood of his car.

Yes, there is a story here if there ever was one. A man and his dreams. I related to Saleem in a way that men who dream know each other. I wish Saleem and his family all the best and hope he can realise his dreams.
