Born in Sri Lanka, Sai Sivanesan’s parents moved to Nigeria in 1980. She was eight years old when she got my first camera, a Sunpet - 616 on a trip to the UK. Summers were spent traveling, Seychelles, India, England, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Kenya, Canada, the US and other places. By 1988, Nigeria was in a state of flux, under its second Military government. Sri Lanka was 4 years into a continuing civil conflict. The Nigerian currency lost its value overnight and her parent's expectations of wealth had evaporated; and Canada, Toronto, became home to another refugee family.
