HA NOI — An exhibition of photos taken on the beautiful island of Cuba by Viet Nam Pictorial photographers opened yesterday in Ha Noi.

The exhibition, entitled Mot Thoang Cu Ba (A Glimpse of Cuba) features over 80 vibrant photo impression of the daily lives of Cubans by Vietnamese photographers Le Phuc, Quang Minh, Vu Khanh and Vinh Quang, taken during their first visit to Cuba.

Chieu Tren Duong Pho La Habana (One Afternoon on the Streets of Havana), Nhung Co Gai Nhiet Doi (Tropical Girls), and Bien Varadero (Varadero Beach) are a few of the photos that are impressing viewers at the exhibition.

The photos express the joy in the dynamic lives of Cubans, and Vietnamese can also see life in another country which has also faced foreign interference and pressures. Cubans remain courageous and optimistic, reflected in photos of sweet kisses in the street and radiant smiles on the faces of Cuban women and children.

At the exhibition’s opening ceremony, Cuban Ambassador to Viet Nam Jesus Aise Sotolongo said, "The exhibition expresses the friendship and solidarity of the Vietnamese people with Cuba. Photos at the exhibition reflect the Cuban culture and society."

"The everyday Cuban life has been captured and expressed accurately and truthfully by the Vietnamese photographers," said Nguyen Duy Cuong, deputy director of the Cuba-Viet Nam Friendship Association, at the opening ceremony.

The exhibition was co-organised by the Cuban Embassy in Viet Nam, Viet Nam Pictorial of the Vietnam News Agency and the Viet Nam-Cuba Friendship Association on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution.

The exhibition runs until January 13 at 29 Hang Bai Exhibition House, 29 Hang Bai Street. — VNS
