La divine empreinte

<p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>The project</u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Adam's Peak (or Sri Pada) is the second highest mountain in Sri Lanka. On top of it is nestled a temple in which we find the first footprint that Adam would have left down the Garden of Eden.</p> <p>  </p> <p> According to the confessions the footprint is attributed to various deities, some see the foot of Shiva or Vishnu, others see Buddha's, and others guess traces of Saint Thomas.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Once a year, between december and april, the mountain is lit and a great pilgrimage gathering all religions in Sri Lanka starts and people reach the sunrise at 2300m above sea level.</p> <p>  </p> <p> One night in October 2011, I have made this climb. I had the chance to feel the strange beauty of the place, to meet pilgrims through this thick jungle up to this calm and mystical peak. I now want to capture, transcribe and share this experience. This webdoc will also serve to provide testimony through various portraits that reflect the possibilities of peace, and its fragility, in a country marked by 15 years of civil war.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Sri_lanka-7-1418773036" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/147140/Sri_Lanka-7-1418773036.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><u>What, who and when ?</u></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> We will achieve this project during <strong>the first 10 days of March 2015</strong> to catch the full moon processions on  March 5th.
