The Persian and The Poet

The Persian and The Poet

by

Cameron and Ramak share poems and talk art. Who is this ’Persian’ and this ’Poet’? Ramak Bamzar is a conceptual photographer who recently completed her Masters in Fine Arts at RMIT. She has always had a love for poetry and she’s ’The Persian’ of this duo, having moved to Melbourne from Iran 12 years ago. Cameron Semmens is ’The Poet’ of this team with 30 years experience on the stage and the page, with 27 books to his name. As well as being relentlessly poetic Cameron also does book design, well-being facilitation and training to be a professional counsellor. Their websites: www.ramakbamzar.com www.webcameron.com
