President’s Message

It is with great pleasure that I pen these lines for the 14th International
Photographic Exhibition of the National Photographic Art Society of Sri Lanka.

During the past fifty eight years the NPAS has pioneered the development of
Photography as art and industry in Sri Lanka. It is due to the remarkable
dedication of NPAS that the relationship between Sri Lanka and other
countries has increased. In this way I am very proud to state that the
photography exhibitions conducted by NPAS are in its heights.

I must state that the honour gained by Sri Lanka among the countries related
to FIAP is due to the NPAS

Being an active national institute in FIAP, our dedication in the field of


photography Stands out through this exhibition. I am sure this venture would
be a great impact to improve our educational, Social Services, Publications,
Examinations and other active fields of society.

This international exhibition is a massive collection of representatives from


thirty countries in the world and it reflects the modern trend in
photography. I believe that this venture will be an immense support and
courage to Sri Lankan photography. Hence I would like to offer my heartiest
gratitude to those who have extended their contribution and dedication, to
make our venture a success.

President - The National Photograpic Art Society of Sri Lanka
Liaison Officer - The I nternational Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP)
Message From Executive Director
We are pleased and honored to receive you at this, the Fourteenth International
Exhibition of Photography under the expressed patronage of the FIAP.
First, this exhibition to me is not merely labeled ‘International’, but this exhibition is
International as it has attracted a total of over one thousand seven hundred
photographic images from twenty nine countries with the participation of two
hundred and seventy seven photographers. Of these, eight hundred images are in
monochrome which stresses that this exhibition is an exhibition where creativity in
the applied and proven theory and practice in photography is emphasized by many
of the author participants.

Secondly, this exhibition gains credibility as the panel of distinguished selectors


comprised of Professor Subroto Ray, from Kolkata – India; acting as the Chairman
and the four others being the reputed and accepted Sri Lankan photographers;
Dr. Uditha Gunasekera, Mr. Bandu Gunaratne, Mr. H.M.R. Perera and Mr. Sarath
Perera.

Thirdly, keeping in mind the tremendously exhaustive task that the five selectors
were called upon to accomplish, the final selection for the exhibition; as decided by
the distinguished panel were a mere two hundred and nine outstandingly artistic
exhibits. This alone makes this an exhibition without equal, as only the best of the
best of creations being presented at the exhibition.

May I also take this opportunity to thank the eminent panel of selectors, the
participants from many countries around the world, not forgetting the large number
of entrants from across the width and breadth of Sri Lanka, the valued sponsors
and those who have monetarily assisted us to make this event a great 05
achievement; those who provided publicity; my colleagues, members who have
assisted us in numerous ways, and those others who have supported this cause
continuously.

Message From Director - Exhibitions
The National Photographic Art Society of Sri Lanka (NPAS) is the only body of
its nature in the Island that holds a membership in the prestigious of Interna-
tional Federation of Photographic Art. In the past, it has contributed a lot towards
the betterment of our photographers in many ways. On this occasion we are
organizing the event of the 14th International Exhibition of Photography - 2008 in
Colombo from the 10th to the 13th of October at the National Art Gallery. By
doing this we intend giving a fair opportunity to all talented photographers in the
Island to come forward and exhibit their creations to get exposure, competing
in the International arena as over thirty countries have already submitted their
creations to us.

Organizing an event of this magnitude is no easy task and I take this opportunity
to thank all who supported me, being a driving force behind. I treasure their
words of encouragement and at times proper guidance to make this event an
absolute success. The long name-list includes firstly those of The President and
the board of directors of the National Photographic Art Society of Sri Lanka and
secondly, its membership. In addition I must mention the panel of selectors ably
led by Prof Subroto Ray of India who contributed immensely towards the success.
I also take this opportunity to thank the principal sponsor Mr Roshan Kaluara-
chchi; head of marketing Mobitel and co-sponsors Brown & Company, Olympus,
Kodak, India Sri Lanka Foundation, Ninehearts, Fuji film and The Ceylon Society
of Arts without whom we would still be in the planning stage. Finally hats off to
the exhibition committee for their excellent corporation throughout the sessions.

I hope the exhibition will be a success in the eyes of the general public of this
country.

Message From The Chairman Selection Panel

Civilization has progressed from age to age and those civilizations that
failed to progress simply died out. This is the law of Nature and applies to
all aspects of culture, whether scientific or artistic. Progress is the very life
culture, and this is the truth of Photography also.

Photography is an ideal combination of Science and Fine Art. Today we find


that there has been fabulous progress in the field of photographic technol-
ogy, but where is the corresponding advancement in the Art of Photogra-
phy? We are still making photographs only of things we can see with our
eyes, but man not only sees but also feels and thinks; if Photo-art is to
progress, we must try to express our feelings and thoughts. This needs
serious experimenting with the Art of Photography. We must think of
objects as symbols of thoughts and ideas. A burning Candle can symbol-
ize life; an extinguished candle can mean death – and the smoke makes
a beautiful pattern too. A book can mean knowledge but burning books
mean fanaticism.

There are limitless possibilities in symbolism and surrealism. We must ex-


periment with the possibilities if Photographic Art is to survive and prog-
ress. If we try ten times and succeed only once, that would be one invalu-
able step forward, - one little contribution to PROGRESS.
