Seoul (VNA) – The Vietnam News Agency (VNA) is joining 46 news agencies worldwide at an international photojournalism exhibition on COVID-19, which opened at the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History in Seoul on November 24.

The exhibition is displaying 120 photos selected from 610 entries submitted. As part of the event, 3,000 photo books on the topic, each having 250 pages, will be given away to visitors.

The VNA brought to the exhibition a collection of photos taken by reporter Le Minh Son from the agency’s multi-language online newspaper VietnamPlus. The photos captured military personnel and police on duty at a pedestrian area in Hanoi in a bid to prevent the spreading of the COVID-19 disease. The area was once popular among foreign tourists to the Vietnamese capital, but is now deserted due to the pandemic.
Lasting until March 1 next year, the event aims to share common COVID-19 difficulties facing people all over the world. The photos also reflect the reporters’ dedication beyond the fear of being infected./.
