HCM City (VNA) – Couleurs d’Asie by Réhahn – Saigon, a new gallery by Hoi An-based photographer Réhahn, will open in HCM City on June 1.

The gallery, located on historic Dong Khoi Street, will open every day from 7:30 am to 10:30 pm, and entrance is free.

The gallery features some of Réhahn’s most well-known pieces, including works from Vietnam, Malaysia, India and Cuba.

The space is divided into two rooms. The first offers a special focus on photographs from Vietnam, while the second presents the other countries and his “Limited Edition” Fine Art photography, which sells for upwards of 2,000 USD per photo.

A recent patron purchased his famous “Best Friends” photo for 16,000 USD, making it the most expensive Fine Art photo ever sold in Vietnam (Forbes, January 2017). Only three Fine Art prints of “Best Friends” were produced in 100x150cm format and they now hang in private collections in Vietnam, Belgium, and France.

Notably, the gallery will also display, for the first time in Vietnam, a broad collection of his pictures from Cuba. Réhahn has a special relationship with the island and has visited it 12 times over the past 10 years. His work is featured in the Asian House Museum in Havana, Cuba.-VNA
