HCM CITY — An exhibition of more than 100 photographs showing the beauty of the country’s islands and seas and a glimpse into the lives of soldiers stationed there and local residents opened on Wednesday (October 24) at the Vietnam News Agency (VNA)’s southern representative office in HCM City.
They were shot by VNA and other journalists or shared by Việt Nam-Russia oil and gas exploration joint venture (Vietsovpetro).
Speaking at the exhibition opening, VNA general director Nguyễn Đức Lợi said the photographers have captured images from the actual lives of the soldiers and locals.
“The photos show their responsibility towards and love for the country’s seas and islands.”
The organisers, VNA and Vietsovpetro, next plan to take the photos to some secondary schools in the city to enable their students to learn about the difficulties faced by people at sea and on islands.
“Việt Nam - Nhìn từ biển” (Việt Nam’s view from the sea) exhibition will go on until Sunday (October 27).
The VNA office is at 116-118 Nguyễn Thị Minh Khai, District 3. — VNS
