Sri Lanka, two years after the tsunami

I had the opportunity in 2007 to photograph people in eastern Sri Lanka with the Galway-Sri Lanka project. It was then more than two years after the 2004 tsunami, and the project hosting me had built first emergency accomodation and, later, homes for people who had lost their homes.

The losses were not only houses, of course. Not only access to fresh water. Many families told stories about loss of children, parents, and more.
