THE BED is an ongoing project of a series portraying women from Sri Lanka.
Individual women sitting on one bed, living and taking different paths, having different dreams, coming from different origins and Religions and going through different battles.
I want to highlight their story, their femininity, their beauty, their fragility as well as their power.
I would love to find other BEDS in other countries like Iran, Lebanon, Jordan, Japan, India, Russia, China and more... If you are willing to provide a BED, whatever country you are from, please contact me and let's have a chat.
THE BED est un projet en évolution présentant des portraits de femmes du Sri Lanka.
Des femmes se présentant assise sur un même lit, choisissant et vivant des voies différentes, ayant des rêves différents, venant d'origines et de Religions différentes et traversant des batailles différentes.
Je veux mettre en avant leur parcours, leur féminité, leur beauté, leur fragilité tout comme leur force.
J'aimerais trouver un autre BED (lit) dans d'autres pays tels que l'Iran, le Liban, la Jordanie, le Japon, l'Inde, la Russie, la Chine, etc... Toutes propositions de collaboration seront étudiées avec intérêt.
