Update: April, 11/2014 - 08:22

HCM CITY (VNS) — A photo exhibition of beautiful Japanese landscapes is being displayed at a coffee shop in HCM City to raise funds for underprivileged children.

Pho Ba Quoc Huy, a Vietnamese graduate of Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in Japan, and his father, Pho Ba Cuong, a professional photographer, took the photos.

Huy, who is the founder of the Japan-Viet Nam Photo website, said he was attracted by beautiful sites. Huy's interest in photography began when he was 16 years old, and he later organised several exhibitions in Japan and Viet Nam.

"There are several beautiful and wonderful sites in Japan because the country clearly has four seasons. During my years in this country, I have visited several places," said Huy, who now works in the financial industry in Japan.

Huy told Viet Nam News that some of his photos had been published in calendars and newspapers in both Japan and Viet Nam.

Cuong said that his son had often followed his father and assisted him on site during his shoots.

The exhibit of 20 photos by Cuong and Huy can be seen at Gallery Cafe Lavie at 16 Ho Xuan Huong Street, District 3, HCM City. — VNS
