HCM CITY – A Vietnamese-French septuagenarian has sent to HCM City over 300 photos featuring the Vietnamese community in France.

Lê Tấn Xuân, 77, took photos at various community events like Lunar New Year, Hồ Chí Minh’s birth anniversary, Independence Day, Prime Minister Phạm Văn Đồng’s visit to France, and others, capturing the community’s cultural evolution over the years.

He has been a photographer and member of the Vietnamese community in France for 50 years.

This year the country will celebrate the 105th anniversary of Hồ Chí Minh’s departure from HCM City in his quest for national salvation and 70th anniversary of his visit to France as president, and through the photos Xuân hopes to contribute to the occasions. — VNS
