HÀ NỘI — Sải Cánh Của Hoang Dã (Wings of the Wild), a photo exhibition by two Vietnamese photographers, Andy Nguyễn and Đặng Mỹ Hạnh, of their journeys into the world of wildlife will be held from August 4 to 7.

The exhibition, which is to take place at Hà Nội Creative City, 1 Lương Yên Street, Hai Bà Trưng District, is aimed at bringing a natural and pure beauty to art beholders in Việt Nam. Each photo is a message on the values of human ecology and provides a deep awareness of preserving the beautiful natural world. A beauty that deserves preserving, treasuring and honouring.

Andy Nguyễn is a professional wildlife photographer. His expertise is bringing a fresh far-sighted perspective to the fascinating world of birds and animals. With a strong photographic background spanning 30 years, he has developed a unique style of shooting flying birds since the birth of digital media. He has been teaching classes, leading instructional photo workshops, sitting on juries for photo contests and speaking at various events. His workshops are organised in many parts of the United States and other countries.

Đặng Mỹ Hạnh is the only female Vietnamese-born wildlife photographer in the world. Her passion of wildlife is expressed through moving images of the wild natural world. Fully equipped with an in-depth knowledge in ornithology (the study of birds), and a writer majoring in the subject of wildlife, Hạnh is praised for her sharp and delicate eyes in the art of photography and literature.

Andy Nguyễn and Hạnh’s artistic works have earned many prestigious international photography awards from BBC Wildlife, PSA (Photographic Society of America), FIAP and NANPA (North American Nature Photography Association).

Especially, Andy Nguyễn is honoured as the first ever Vietnamese-born photographer to receive the BBC’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award in 2009. His work has been published in world celebrated magazines like National Geographic, and other magazines in the field of wildlife and photography. Several of his works have been exhibited at the National Museums of the US, England and many other European countries. — VNS
