HCM CITY -- A collection of 30 photographs of Hà Nội and Huế at night will go on display in the capital from April 14 to 23 and the central city from April 29 to May 4.
Conceived, executed and produced by Sebastien Laval, a France-based photographer with ties in Việt Nam that date back to the early 1990s, Hanoi 18h/6h Hue 18h/6h evokes haunting perspectives of otherwise ordinary settings – quiet alleys, lonely railways and fluorescent-lit shops.
The photos in the exhibition – to be held at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi and MGallery La Residence Hue Hotel & Spa – were taken on a digital camera without artificial light between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.
They will hang in the Metropole’s garden and the lobby at La Residence.
They will later be exhibited at the Art Vietnam Gallery in Hà Nội.VNS
