these photographs are of sweepers from weligama and kandy, sri lanka. the Body was composed By the suBjects to Bring out democracy in the photo and to give appearance similar to late 1920’s worker photography movement.

illuminating a darker side of early modernity and photography’s history, the project is a personal conversation aBout photography and laBour.
