Summary
"Lionel Wendt's Ceylon is typical of his photographic style--pictorialist-modernist in the English mode--and illustrates a clash of two cultures, with Wendt looking at his own culture almost like an outsider--which, given his background, he partially was. ... Lionel Wendt's Ceylon is better described as an interesting photobook than a great one, but it is a fascinating example of the cultural schizophrenia that photographers in colonial countries have worked to get away from."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004
