About This Item

1880. Very good condition. Two impressive large vernacular photographs of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), by the accomplished British photographer who arrived in Sri Lanka in the 1870s and opened studios in Kandy and Colombo. Scowen's images are noted for their strong compositions, good lighting and high quality printing. The first photograph showing an elaborately woven covered cart pulled by two dark bullocks, with villagers standing at the exterior of tile roofed shops, behind. Signed in white in the print, at the lower left. The second image depicting a farmer plowing a field with a pair of bullocks, with an observer standing at the side, and a grove of trees in the background. 11 x 8 3/4", laid down on card stock. Titled in ink below the image in period hand.
