My name is Alaka Jayasekara and my romance with monochrome photography goes hand in glove with my passion for all things old, from history to antiques and the mysteries of the past. Having grown up in the historical city of Kandy, the hill capital of the Island of Serendib (aka Ceylon aka Sri Lanka) also the city of my birth, an appreciation for culture and history likely runs in my blood.

Like one hears better with eyes closed so almost is a monochrome photograph devoid of distracting color but attention now to the content, context and light. Light being an important factor in photography makes more sense to me specially when I factor in that my name means light.

Having hopped from one Island to the next, Long Island has been home for me the last decade where I now live with my wife and four furry friends.
