Malmi Deshila Anandi De Zoysa ‘An evening in a preschool classroom’, 2016
When leisurely wandering across the vast compound of the one world foundation school, the female photographer came across this empty classroom, bathed in the late-afternoon light. Having studied in this room, she remembers it was here that she first learned that ups and downs in life are inevitable. The photograph captures this profound experience, highlighting the intriguing contrast of fading daylight and shadows that fill the class room. The haphazard position of the upturned chairs on the tables represents the endeavors and failures of human beings to cope with the vicissitudes of life.
