The exhibition, featuring 120 photos captured during their journeys to the islands, is scheduled to take place at Hanoi’s Information and Exhibition House, 93 Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Hoan Kiem district, on August 3-7.
Participating photographers include Chairman of the Vietnam Artistic Photo Association (VAPA)Vu Quoc Khanh; Vice Director of the Department of Fine Art, Photography, and Exhibition Tran Thi Thu Dong, and Editor-in-Chief of the Dat Mui pictorial Le Nguyen.
The idea for the exhibition first came to Dong after her first trip to Truong Sa.
Dong said she was lucky to visit the archipelago and wanted to convey her sentiment towards the landscape through her work as a photographer.
“Through the exhibition, we expect to bring the beauty and life of soldiers and residents on the islands closer to mainlanders and tourists,” Dong said.
Her idea soon received much support from others, with Voice of Vietnam General Director Nguyen The Ky naming the exhibition and VAPA photographers also sending in their works. Artist Pham Ha Hai has undertaken the responsibility of designing a logo and curating the exhibition.
