Markus Spring is an official with the City of Munich, Germany. He has made many trips to Sri Lanka as organizer of Munich's assistance to that troubled country. In the framework of a European Commission funded program, he works at capacity-building for water and sanitation in order to improve the living conditions of those the tsunami affected. The program is empowering local government to use modern planning techniques, as well as establishing a well drilling school, and has built numerous wells, rainwater harvesting tanks, and toilets.
In addition to that work at his day job, Markus has been amassing a strong portfolio of photographs dealing with the large number of internally displaced persons in that nation plagued by disasters both natural and human-caused. More at his blog.
