HCM City (VNA) - Twenty-three photos by French artist Thiery Beyne are on display at the Eastin Grand Hotel Saigon in HCM City. The Back Photography exhibition features the backs of Vietnamese women he photographed during his travels in the country.

To satisfy his passion for travel and photography, he began travelling in the 80s, traversing several Asian countries, including India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.

During his 15 years in Vietnam, he has had a chance to travel from the north to the south, meet many different people, and show different perspectives about life in Vietnam through his work.

“From behind the shadow, we let ourselves dream about the face on the other side: that of a refined Vietnamese woman,” he said. “Imagination stimulates the senses by unveiling beauty through their backs. I invite you to see the ‘stolen’ backs that are rarely photographed.”

His Back Photography works were exhibited in Paris in March.-VNA
