Henry Rajakaruna will host his eighth solo exhibition ‘Another World Unveiled’ at the JDA Perera Gallery, from September 7 to 9. The exhibition will be unique in its construct, in that it will showcase three separate genres of Rajakaruna’s expert photography. It will focus on Portraits of Humanity by bringing in flavours of Street Photography, Photo Stories and Essays as well as the Art of Blur.

He intends to showcase an evolution of his own style of photographic art since his first exhibition two decades ago, while bringing in a more global context to the moments he had captured. His aspiration is that visitors to the exhibition would have an opportunity to savour artistic moments from different parts of the world, allowing them to transcend across several cultures to appreciate the lives and moments captured through his lense over the years. Rajakaruna has held seven solo exhibitions successfully with different themes. This exhibition will focus on ‘Portraits of Humanity’ bringing in flavours of Street Photography, Photo Stories and Essays as well as the Art of Blur.

During his spare time Rajakaruna shares his knowledge with amateur and professional photographers as well as Institutes and Academies. ‘I work with the corporate sector on different levels as well as relevant government organizations. I help some of the key photographic associations in Sri Lanka on an advisory capacity and have served on panels to judge local and international competitions. My unique style of photography has gained a significant following locally and internationally”, he said about the exhibition.

The exhibition times will be:
September 7 - 1.30pm to 7.pm
September 8 and 9 – 9am to 7pm
