2011 Photo Scholarship - A Small Village in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka | Saturday, 5 November 2011 | 5 photos

I believe photography is what is captured the precise moment your finger releases the shutter. It’s the refraction of a story of a moment in time. It has the ability to place all of our senses into this preserved moment – a harmony of light, emotion, color and effect. It is how I illustrate to the world what I see from my eyes. For me, there is no greater art. And certainly, there is no finer way to grasp the intricate existence that surrounds us.

Photography is not only my passion, it is what enables me to share my experiences in a way that words cannot. As I move around this earth, that is my focus. I know I have innumerable things to learn and discover. It has always been a process. But I have had a camera in my hand as long as I can remember. I have never taken a class, but I have reached a pinnacle where I have a desire stronger than ever to progress in ways I never imagined. I could only dream of an opportunity such as this. If given to me, I would use it in every possible way to tell better stories through photography and open up new worlds to the people I am able to share them with.

These five photographs were taken in a small village in Sri Lanka. With a population of only 200 and very little contact with foreigners, my experience in this place became one of my most authentic, stimulating travel encounters. I was enthralled by their way of celebration, cooking and family, which is reflected in these photographs. I lived in the village and engaged into their way of life. The beauty and hospitality of the Sri Lankan people is something that will always stay with me.
