A Sequence Of Sri Lanka

A Sequence Of Sri Lanka is a short film that I have FINALLY put together, taken whilst solo travelling Sri Lanka at the beginning of the year. The warm ocean, tropical palm tree lined beaches, welcoming people, stray dogs, crazy streets and beautiful light, that’s what Lanka is to me. It’s meant to be a messy…

The Ocean for Women’s Empowerment

Abay Girls Surf Club & SeaSisters Sri Lanka Whilst I was in Sri Lanka I volunteered and photographed for a day at a surf and swimming lesson for local women and girls run by SeaSisters in Weligama. I’d heard about the Abay Girls Surf Club and was in awe of the women who were pushing…

Snaps from Sri Lanka
