HCM City (VNA) – A photo exhibition has opened at the HCM City Book Pedestrian Street on Nguyen Van Binh Street in District 1 to celebrate the 41st anniversary of Reunification Day.

Organised by the Vietnam News Agency (VNA), Vietnam - The Country and People features 60 black-and-white and colour photos selected from collections by six photographers of the VNA.

The works are the result of their hard work over years, with each picture representing a report on culture and lifestyle.

Highlighted photos feature children and women in remote provinces such as Lai Chau and Thai Binh.

“The works tell stories about the beauty of Vietnamese, who work hard every day to develop their land,” said Nguyen Thuy Dung, who visited the opening ceremony.

Half of the money raised from sales of the photos will go to the Vietnam News Agency’s Fund for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin.

The exhibition ends on May 9.-VNA
