My friend Garret Clarke went to Sri Lanka for two weeks this summer to shoot a reclusive and rarely photographed tribe called the Dambana Vedda, but he came back from the trip with five sweet series’. Personally, I like the train ride series the best. But his outdoor studio portraits of the Dambana Vedda hanging out in the jungle wearing loincloths and carrying spears are pretty damned NatGeo. And the tea farming series is just plain pretty.
He just finished doing the post processing and has posted them to his website. He’s also looking for writers in Sri Lanka who are looking for pictures for their stories, or would like to write one based on his.
