Sri Lanka - Beautiful Ingredients & Markets

Manon HoustonComment

Here are some photos from 2015 when I visited Sri Lanka. It’s nice to have a place to share my personal work. I was just starting to be interested in food photography. I was studying for my BA Advertising photography. I loved gathering lotus and rummaging through the kitchen of the rural home I was staying at. I found hardback books to use the covers and inside pages to style the shots. I remember the excitement of using the natural light and the vibrant colours of the ingredients and flowers. I travelled for 6 weeks all around beautiful Sri Lanka. It’s so sad to think of the Easter Sunday attacks, after it was beginning to flourish again after the long civil war. Prayers to Sri Lanka.
