|The Fishing Net Making in Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta by amateur photographer Do Tuyet Trinh.
LONDON (VNS) — A photograph by Do Tuyet Trinh has been selected as one of the best five at the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year 2014 competition.
The photographs, selected at the international showcase for the very best in environmental photography and film, will be on display at the Royal Geographical Society in London from June 23 to July 4, 2014. Works were selected through an open submission process: entries are judged on impact, composition, originality, creativity and technical ability.
The Fishing Net Making in Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta that Trinh took in 2012 features women in fishing villages in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta. The work emphasises the effects of climate change and the annual unusual flooding occurring in the region.
Trinh, an amateur photographer born in Ha Noi, works as an expert in financial and banking sector. In 2010, she received a Humphrey scholarship to study at Boston University, USA. There she attended a training course in journalism photography.
Since then, a Canon camera has been Trinh's inseparable partner that helps her record the diverse colours of life across the world. Though she has travelled to five continents, Viet Nam remains her never-ending inspiration.
During a visit to the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta's Bac Lieu Province, the beauty of women weaving fishing net allured her to capture the moment and made her to shoot non-stop. The Fishing Net Making in Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta has brought her two awards from the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year 2014 (the UK) and the People&Planet International Photo Competition 2013 (Australia). — VNS
