SAJA Reporting Fellowship

I just arrived back in Sri Lanka to begin a 2 week long reporting fellowship that I was awarded earlier this year from the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA) in the U.S.

The grant allows me to continue my long-term project called The Sidi Project ( that documents the African diaspora of South Asia, the descendants of slaves forcibly brought eastwards by the colonial powers of the Portuguese, French, Dutch and British as part of the Indian Ocean slave trade.

For the next 2 weeks I will be focusing on the tiny and fragile population living on Sri Lanka in scattered and fragmented communities. Thanks to the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA) for helping me to make this documentary that see's very little attention in todays media. And to Redux Pictures and photo editor Jeff Campagna at The Smithsonian Magazine for their support.
