Northern Sri Lanka A photography project by Frédéric Lagrange

Seemingly finding peace and a sense of unity after nearly 30 years of intense civil war. Sri Lanka remains a unique and mysterious country.

Even if the conflict between the Tamil Tigers and the government forces ended in 2009, it is only recently that Sri Lanka has truly begun the process of healing; this is nowhere more evident than in the optimism of the young and in the rebuilding process of the previously war-torn regions in the north and east.

Now that the conflict has abated, visitors and hope are returning. Uncovering the little-known treasures, from virgin forests and beaches to remarkable temples and romantic lodges, that are putting the region back in the spotlight.

Traveling from the capital Colombo and up to the birthplace of the Tigers’ movement in northern Jaffna, the journey takes us through stunning places where nature and tradition blend with the warmth of human stories.

When taking a picture of a landscape, just like in a portrait or a scene, photographers attempt to tell a story.

All approaches are valid and we want to see as many different styles and compositions as possible!
