On Friday 24 November, photographer Bram Schilling will open an exhibition of his photographs at ISS.

The exhibition, Under the Palmyra tree: Sri Lanka's scarred Tamil community, documents the scarred and traumatized Tamil community in North- Sri Lanka.

It shows stories of people who are struggling with the psychological and physical aftermath of almost three decades of civil war which ended in 2009. This ethnicity-based war was between the Sri Lankan Army and the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) was called “Eelam War”.

The exhibition will remain at ISS until 12 January 2018.
