“Eḷavaḷu” by Photographer Julia Tatarchenko

A delightful still life series by photographer Julia Tatarchenko (previously featured here). Shot in Sri Lanka and named after the Sinhala word for vegetable, Tatarchenko’s project offers a portrait of the country using its produce as her point of departure:

“An intriguing study, it shows how distinctive the produce of different places can be. Everything changes here: naming, varieties, what’s relevant and what’s not, how it alters the spectrum of flavors and dishes. These notions are deeply rooted in a group’s culture and imagery.”
