Photos of political posters belonging to the JVP (People’s Liberation Front in Sinhalese) as seen in the streets of Colombo – circa late 2007.
I’ve used the notes feature on flickr.com to translate the slogans into English. You’ll have to click on the images to see those. Translating these posters and others like these (coming soon) into English was tricker than I thought. Some of them have interesting Sinhalese word play that’s practically meaningless in English. The process made me realise that oddness of being bilingual.
Enough tell. Time to show 🙂
