A portrait session of Helga de Silva of Helga's Folly in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

A portrait session of Helga de Silva of Helga's Folly in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

Helga's Folly in Kandy is still one of the most remarkable places to visit in Sri Lanka if not the world. There is no place quite like it. It changes all the time, and although it appeared in my first ever book 'Living in Sri Lanka' over 12 years ago. We re-visited again to shoot a portrait and be entertained by the amazing Helga who is such a wonderful character.

It would have been great to include it again in our latest edition we are here working on, as it has changed so much since shooting it in 2002, but as Helga points out it will continue to do so. This book is all new material which has been fun researching and shooting, with back to back shooting and moving for three months now.
