I shot most of my trip to Sri Lanka on film. I felt the format best fit the country: raw, real and artistic.
Sri Lanka is an incredible destination. On this small island, one can experience bustling urban centres, lush green jungle scenes, hike up rolling hills and soak up the sun on beaches lined with turquoise waters.
The people there smile at you genuinely and say hello with sincerity.
Now seems to be a special time to visit; because while tourism is growing, the locals have yet to grow tired of showing off their country to curious foreigners.
Food is healthy, clean and home made. The fresh juices are sourced from trees mere meters away. I’ve never tasted a mango so sweet.
Tuktuk rides are the perfect mix of frightening and fun. My only word of caution is not to linger too long underneath the towering palm trees, or you may just end up with a coconut falling on your head.

These photos were shot throughout February on 35mm film we found at a garage sale for $1.
These were shot on 35mm film from Japan that we found for under a dollar at a garage sale.
I love capturing my environment in black and white. There's something so raw about it.
