I’m happy to announce my photo story “Bitter Sweet Tea Drops” is being featured on Foto Evidence website as one of the selected works. The story deals with the hard life conditions Tamil workers have to endure in Sri Lanka’s tea industry. Sri Lanka is one of world’s main tea producers and exporters, and tea adds up to a hefty amount of the country’s meager GDP.
About Foto Evidence, quoting from their website: “Since the dawn of photography, images captured on film have brought previously undocumented events to the attention of the public. Photographs have changed not only people’s perception but, in some cases, altered the course of history. Fotoevidence is founded to continue the tradition of using photography to draw attention to human rights violations, injustice, oppression and assaults on sovereignty or human dignity wherever they may occur.”
