HCMC exhibition on ethnic people to hand out photo books

Published: 08/11/2012 04:01



Visitors to the upcoming exhibition titled “My Culture – Conversations in Open Spaces” which will be opened in Ho Chi Minh City on November 10 will have a chance to receive photo books gathering pictures displayed at the event.

To be held by the Institute for Studies of Society, Economy and Environment (iSEE), the event features 143 photographs chosen from more than 70,000 shots taken by 64 participants from different ethnic origins like the H’mong, Dao, Muong, Thai, Pa Co, Van Kieu and Khmer.

The photos reflecting cultural practices, livelihoods, beliefs, spirituality and recent changes in daily life were captured during an iSEE’s program called “photovoice” which aims to let the photos speak the language of insiders, which professional photographers cannot possess.

For people in other provinces who cannot visit the exhibition, they can register to get the book through the email address isee@isee.org.vn as of the event’s opening date.

The event was already held in April in Hanoi at Ly Thai To Park, near Hoan Kiem Lake, attracting many spectators, including foreigners, with 150 outstanding photographs displayed.

HCMC’s “My Culture – Conversations in Open Spaces” is scheduled to run until November 20 at District 1’s Lam Son Park.
