I was recruited to join a team of architects and textile designers en route to post-civil war Sri Lanka. The group's  goal was to obtain an intensive cultural study and meet the orphanages and designers that they will be partnering with in the upcoming years. After conversing with leading architects in the country, working under textile artisans and volunteering at just one of the many orphanages scattered across the country, I created an extensive archive of images of the journey. My team will continue to present these photographs along side their research, encouraging further global support for moving Sri Lanka forward.
