Hanoi (VNA) - An exhibition showcasing the lands and people in foreign countries through the lens of Vietnamese photographers opened in Hanoi, on March 17 by the Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA).

Works on display include 140 photos taken by 80 Vietnamese photographers in 35 different countries and territories throughout the world.

The photos, selected from nearly 1,770 entries sent to the VAPA, capture the natural beauty, architectural sites, daily lives, cultural practices and portraits of people in foreign countries.

The event is among the VAPA’s efforts to create a photo database of countries around the world, while tightening the solidarity among Vietnamese people and their international friends.

At the ceremony, the VAPA presented certificates of merit to its outstanding members in acknowledgement of their excellent work performance in 2017, as well as their significant contributions to the development of Vietnamese photography. - VNA
