Ship worker’s Sicilian roots
"MY DAD was Sicilian and was the best cook in the world," Slice of Life subject Daniel Iacono told Northern Star photographer Marc Stapelberg.
"I learnt a little Italian as a boy. We had six boys and four girls in the family.
"I made my way to the shipping docks when I was older. I earned $200 an hour in the engine rooms. We used to carry five gallon drums up stairs at an 85 degree angle.
"My foster dad worked as a projectionist in Lismore and only recently retired."
