Photo by @edkashi/@viiphoto: K. Bandulawarna, 37, poses for a portrait at home in Nelumvila Billewa, Sri Lanka on July 2, 2016. He was a farmer from the age of 18-25, and then became a Civil Security Department guard during the civil war. Now he suffers from end stage CKDu, must have dialysis every 3 days and is dependent on his pension to support his wife and two children.
This photo is part of a larger body of work about the epidemic of fatal chronic kidney disease plaguing agricultural workers in Sri Lanka. More of this work will be exhibited during the month of October at the Baie de Saint-Brieuc Festival Photoreporter.#fpr2016 #srilanka #ckd #viiphoto
