While in the bustling marketplace of Galle where the assignment started I was scouring for shots that would help me capture the essence of the people who lived and worked there. Despite being a confined space, I was able to make this photo that shows the warmth of Sri Lankan people and their deep connection with the ocean for their livelihood while conveying a sense of place.
