Outstanding pictures portray 3,000-year-old Sri Lankan martial arts

Amazing pictures of a 3,000-year-old form of Sri Lankan martial arts are featured on the New York City-based The Phoblographer website, which “explores the psychology of photographers as they do their work”

 In this case, the focus is on Sri Lankan photographer Reza Akram, who “has made documenting and propagating awareness of Angampora culture to the world his bold mission”.

As a result, he has travelled throughout rural Sri Lanka and worked closely with the local practitioners of Angampora for his pictures of the fighters in action.

In his series Project Angampora, staged to simulate actual Angam fighting in mid action, Akram’s choice of high-contrast black-and-white “was spot on to strongly emphasise on the ferocity of the fights”.
