It is the city of Kattankudy located in the eastern part of Sri Lanka.

In a country that is 70% Buddhist, but almost all of the 40,000 people in the city believe in Islam. Forty students attend the school “Zahira Special School” for children with disabilities. In Sri Lanka, Muslims and children with disabilities are considered minorities. And, they receive little support from the country, and there are various problems. I was there to photograph there last year, and I will do there again this year. In order to be able to take pictures of the inside of them more. And here is the place where there was criminals who attacked some cities by bombs this year. Therefore I’m going to take pictures of the present of these children after that.
