Martin Parr’s second contribution to our One Picture Book Series, Seven Colonial Still Lifes, takes us to Colombo, Kandy, and Newara Eliya, Sri Lanka. A logical companion book to his previous book in this series, Seven Communist Still Lifes, this colorful little book highlights some of the lighter sides of colonialism-gone-awry.
