Afternoon at the Museum
Designed by WG Smithers and constructed by Wapchie Marikar, the Colombo National Museum opened to the public in 1877. Since then, the building has more than quadrupled in size, with new wings being added in the first quarter of the 20th century. The grounds remain a green haven in the city, with the Natural History section now having its own museum at the far end of the open space. Shot on assignment for Serendib magazine which featured my photo story on the museum, Katu Ge, in the October 2017 issue.
