The exhibition themed "Femmes du Vietnam: Tradition et Modernities" (Vietnamese women: Tradition and Modernity) is being jointly organized by the France-Vietnam Friendship Association and the authorities of the Loire-Atlantique region in France.
More than 60 artworks highlighting Vietnamese women’s beauty seen from their back, along with their costumes, working tools, and household utensils were photographed by Thiery Beyne during his past tours throughout Vietnam.
Beyne began travelling in the 1980s, traversing several Asian countries, including India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
During his Vietnam tours, including a 7-year-stay, he has had a chance to travel from north to south, meet many different people, and showcase different perspectives about life in Vietnam through his work.
The exhibition also showcases black-and-white photographs featuring Vietnamese landscapes and people in daily lives snapped by French photographer Jean-Michel Nicolau.
Besides, portraits of 11 outstanding Vietnamese women by French journalist Sabrina Rouille are being exhibited.
The event is taking place as part of Festival aux Coeurs du Vietnam, the Vietnamese heart festival, in celebration the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and France this year.
The exhibition will last through to Sunday.
