Can you tell I'm still on Cloud 9?πŸ˜πŸ˜„ Most of my photos have a little bit of inspiration from GVM's movies or songs from his movies. To see a message like this from the Man himself is indescribable! ❀

The perks of having thoughtful friends in the industry πŸ˜„ Thank you tons @nooobodyyy !! πŸ™πŸ™ Photo: Galle, Sri Lanka (2018)

Firstly thank you all so much for the positive feedback on this new effort with Palm Roots!
I received tons of messages with similar questions so I’d like to clarify a few of them. * DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: September 30th (in 10 days!)
1.Β Its ONE submission per photographer please! That way, more people have an opportunity to showcase their work!
2.Β Type of photos: preferably landscapes, landmarks that relate to Tamil history/heritage, portraits of people (hidden faces if possible). 3.Β Black & White images are accepted.
4.Β A Photographer does not necessarily mean someone who owns a business or pursues it as a career. If you have photos that are unique and will capture the attention of a wide range of audience, it counts!

Any further questions, feel free to comment below 😊

This best friend of mine and I share the same birthday today - what are the odds! ❀ Never felt more blessed and grateful for everything I learn and experience because of you.

Watching fishermen leave for work close to sunset.

Uncertainty is an ongoing theme in most of their lives. Uncertain of the amount of fish they may catch, uncertain of the future of their professions, uncertain of if they would be able to afford their family's expenses.. But they leave everyday ready to work, and do their best hoping for better results than the day before. Uncertainty can be positive or negative; what truly matters is how you perceive it.

Alright another long post from me..πŸ™ˆ
.
Sept 8, 2013: 5 years ago, on this date was my first ever "Palm Roots"
.
Here I am, a little emotional and extremely grateful of the journey its been. There were a very few people who believed that a Tamil, female photographer could get the attention of the community and create an impact. I was perceived as being arrogant for believing that my photos would actually be worthy enough to sell and raise enough funds. A year later, in 2014, I made my biggest sale to date when a photo I took was sold for $7000 which was then donated to provide scholarships for young girls in Vanni (North Sri Lanka)
.
In 2015, when I thought Palm Roots didnt have the longevity I had hoped for, I met the right people who continued to believe in the idea and pushed me to take it a little further. Here I am in 2018, putting together my 5th event slated to take place on November 4th.
.
My motive was always to help people, especially children who had big dreams but werent able to pursue them due to their financial conditions. And using art to make this happen was just a reminder for us to rethink the power of art and being an artist.
Looking back at how far this event has come, I cannot be thankful enough to God, my family, my mentors, sponsors and most importantly my friends for your positivity and support. You've all helped me believe in dreams coming true and have hope in Humanity β€πŸ™ #PalmRoots
