Son of senior photographer Sena Vidhanagama, Sanka Vidhanagama’s first ever solo photojournalist exhibition was held at the National Art Gallery continued on Saturday.

The opening ceremony of the exhibition took place last evening. The exhibition has been titled “Retrospect.”

This photo exhibition is being held to mark 10 years of his career as a photojournalist and as a dedication to his father Sena Vidhanagamage.

Nearly 200 photographs including a picture taken in 1987 of a navy officer attacking then Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, are on display at the exhibition. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Parliamentarian Anura Priyadarshana Yapa also attended the exhibition.

Speaking at the event, Rajapaksa said that the media is a group of people that knows the current political situation of the country better than him because he is a bit distant from the country’s political activities now.

“They are speaking of a national government. But nothing seems to be happening,” he said.

The photo exhibition will be held until 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 15.
