The Author

Richard Curzon has lived and worked in some of the world’s most fascinating yet dangerous cities and countries for more than 22 years.

These countries and regions include Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, the Middle East and India. 

In 2012 with the benefit of an awareness of the countries of origin from which most refugees seeking asylum in Australia are travelling, he accepted an assignment at the remote and once notorious Curtin Immigration Detention Centre in the far north west of Western Australia.  

In July 2013 he commenced the manuscript of Destination Detention.

He continues to travel to Pakistan and India for film and television documentary production purposes while completing research at the Centre for the Study of Political Violence and Terrorism, School of International Relations, University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

Destination Detention is his first non-fiction manuscript.
