The civil war in Sri Lanka ended in 2009 after more than 25 years of fighting that left tens of thousands dead. After the war the Sri Lankan economy has been growing and new high rise buildings built in Colombo. Before the independence the island was controlled by the Portuguese, Dutch and English. The cannons by the sea were once mounted at the old fort of Colombo, protecting the economic interests of the colonial empires.
The Indian ocean is the same.

Greetings from Russia
I could have posted some photos from the huge Victory Day Parade I witnessed but then I just didn’t.
Portrait dating few years back. Stumbled across this while browsing through some old hard drives. I’ve had mixed feelings of this kind of photos - you know, epic light and somewhat painterly treatment in post that pushes this away from being actual photograph, feeling less honest. And yet it still does have some appeal to me. Alas, these kind of contradictions make my photographic life more interesting. And Yrjö’s got some sophisticated charisma.
