Long time after his name sank into oblivion, the Sri Lankan photographer Lionel Wendt has now been rediscovered. From homo-erotic portraits to tropical images of Ceylon, (the current Sri Lanka) Wendt’s selection of themes was very diverse. The photographer is known for his use of modernist style elements and experimental techniques. After his much too early death at age 44, his negatives were destroyed. Meanwhile, his fruitless work continued to travel the world. Part of these superb experiments will be showcased during the Ceylon exhibition at Huis Marseille.
