Hanoi (VNA) — A month-long photography event themed “Photo Hanoi ‘21” is taking place in the capital city to honour local and foreign photographers

Initiated by the French Institute in Hanoi-L'Espace, it will attract 30 photographers, visual and creative artists from Vietnam and abroad.

Various cultural activities, exhibitions, forums, talk shows and exchanges on photography are being held between May 1 and June 12 across the capital city, promising to bring many experiences to photographic art lovers and photographers.

Six exhibitions are set to be held within the framework of the event.

The cultural activities are suitable for audiences of all ages and admission is free.
