  • Extra info: Sri Lankan photographer Lionel Wendt’s (1900-1944) choice of subject was eclectic: from sensual and homo-erotic portraits to tropical images of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), and from picturesque scenes to compositions for which he used modernistic stylistic devices and experimental techniques. After his premature death in 1944 his negatives were destroyed, but his prints resurfaced in the 1990s, and are now part of several international private and museums collections. In 2017, Wendt’s work was exhibited at Documentary 14 in Athens, and in a large scale retrospective at Huis Marseille Museum for Photography in Amsterdam from 10 June till 3 September. This book was released on the occasion of the exhibition in Huis Marseille.
