Maestro puppeteer Premin poses for a photograph with a Sri Lankan traditional puppet at the backstage before start a puppet show in Colombo October 18, 2014. Premin comes from a family of puppeteers from the south coastal town of Ambalangoda, which was popular for traditional puppeteers. His grandfather started the family profession of puppeteering in 1922, followed by his father in 1930 and later Premin in 1950. According to Premin, a puppet costs at least $300 to make. Puppet shows have become less popular since the 1980s, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to make a living as a puppeteer, according to Premin. He believes the puppeteer profession is facing a natural death, due to new technology and westernization.
