Images of Vietnam at the heart of Tokyo exhibition

May 28, 2006

The Japanese Photographers Association (JPA) will hold an exhibition of photos capturing Vietnam’s landscape, culture and its people in Tokyo early next month.

The month-long exhibition will feature selected photos taken by Vietnamese photographers from many parts of the country.

Three Vietnamese photographers will attend the exhibition at the invitation of the organizer.

Ba Han of Ho Chi Minh City will showcase his photo collection Thoi Tho Au (Childhood), while Nguyen Hoai Linh of Hanoi will display photographs capturing daily life in the capital city of Vietnam.

Do Dien Khanh will join the exhibition with a collection of photos featuring the scenery and people of Vietnam’s central region.

The JPA will also hold many exhibition rooms in Tokyo displaying works by members of the Hue Photographers Club in central Thua Thien-Hue province and women’s photographic club of Hai Au in HCMC. Since 1996, JPA has organized annual photo exhibitions of works by photographers from Japan and other countries.

Vietnam was selected as the invitee for this year’s event, which marks JPA’s 144th anniversary.
