Tribal Spice Seller

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Shrikanth Balla

In the traditional tribal attire this spice seller just grabs your attention. To this day the spices are collected sun dried in the moist hilly climate and sold at bare minimum prices. Best part she wouldn't take an extra penny for the spices even if offered. I was lucky enough to get the permission from her to click the picture. These tribal people are very shy and scared of the city dwellers.

Location: Araku, Andhra Pradesh, India
