Photographer's Note

The ramparts of Galle, colonial heritage of the Dutch period (17th and 18th century)are elevated high above sealevel and that's where this man was during the fateful second day of Christmas 2004 whe a Tsunami took the live of about 40.000 Srilankans. His wife and daughter were not there but at the shore where now the children are playing.
Her never saw them again and now he is telling his story at the ramparts of Galle.
