S unday, I left Calcutta to fly to Columbo, Sri Lanka, to shoot another job for The Asia Foundation, I was just here in Sri Lanka in September, but there’s new material to shoot, so I’m making a stop here before I head back to the states. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been on the road since mid September!

As a brief introduction to Sri Lanka and The Asia Foundations programs here, I would like to share The Asia Foundation’s own overview for Sri Lanka (courtesy of  The Asia Foundation website):

I’ll be spending the next week here, on assignment, posting pictures whenever possible and talking about why I compose shots the way I do, and sharing technical details about the photographs.

The photos below were made to  help the Asia Foundation, “visually explain” their  “Improving Police-Community Relations” programs. I photographed officers going door-to-door, meeting, greeting, and distributing information to folks in their communities. I also shot some law enforcement officers learning Tamil language. For the full story about The Asia Foundation’s programs in Sri Lanka,  check their website.
