Poverty through the lens
Twenty photojournalists from different newspapers underwent intensive training at Sri Lanka College of Journalism for a period of one week under its mid-career journalism training programme.
They were guided by Mia Grondahl, an internationally renowned photojournalist from Palestine, and Anuruddha Lokuhapuarachchi, senior photojournalist of Reuters.
They captured different images of poverty in the city to develop picture stories of their own. The pictures are exhibited at the Sri Lanka Press Institute at 96, Kirula Road, Colombo 05. The exhibition, open to the public, will end on Monday at 5 p.m.
Published here are the pictures taken by The Sunday Times photographers, Saman Kariyawasam and Athula Devapriya who participated in the training programme.
