After an Apple Falls From the Tree, There is a Sound is Moscow-born Tokyo-based artist Elena Tutatchikova’s first publication. With her gentle, calm images of children spending their summers in Russian nature, Tutatchikova touches upon the recurring, ever-occurring cycle of life.
"Every year, as the summer comes to an end, apples grow and fall from the trees. There, they turn into soil, and the next year, summer can be born anew. Children grow up, become adults. They give birth to new children. People and trees spend their lives in each other’s presence, turn to dirt, are born again. Every year it is the same cycle, the exact same cycle repeats."
