HCM CITY (VNS)— Twenty-eight photos featuring the landscapes and daily life of ethnic minorities in the northwestern part of Viet Nam are part of Nguyen Thanh Tung's solo exhibition that opened on Wednesday in HCM City.

Tung, who has 20 years of experience in photography, has often journeyed to the northwest over the last 13 years.

He said he was especially inspired by the people and landscapes in the northernmost part of the country bordering China and Laos.

"I have memories of the northwestern region where people are very friendly. Every time I stay there I feel as if I am at home," said the photographer who has also travelled to other parts of Viet Nam.

Funds raised from the photos will be donated to children in the area.

The photos can be seen at 53–55 Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street, District 3, HCM City until the end of October. — VNS
