Born foreigner in a foreign land, Anuradha Abeysekera (1985) spent his childhood together with his Sri Lankan family in the most multicultural city of Italy during the 90s - Milan.
Growing up between the grey buildings of the Italian city and its colourful inhabitants, he soon realizes that there is much to see in this world, and even more to tell.
Moving to London to tinker with art photography feels almost natural, and after getting a degree at the Contemporary Media Practice faculty of Westminster University, Anuradha takes his first steps in the art milieu of the city as curator first and as fully-fledged artist later on. When the urge for wider skies hits him, he decides to embark on a two-years long project throughout Asia to further test himself and his storytelling abilities.
Nepal, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand and Sri Lanka, all get captured by his shutter and are exhibited around the world. Starting from 2015, Anuradha relocates to Melbourne, Australia, where he is currently carrying on his work as documentary photographer with a penchant for social issues.
