Venue from The Mekong: Stories of Man

Photographer Lam Duc Hien currently holds his exhibition The Mekong: Stories of Man on the theme of the Mekong River at the gallery “L’Espace” (24 Trang Tien, Hoan Kiem, Ha Noi) in Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi.

The exhibition opened on October 29. Lam is French Vietnamese who was born in Paksé, Southern Laos, and spent his childhood on the bank of the river. He arrived in France in 1977 after spending two years in Thailand’s refugee camp. As a photographer, he traveled the Mekong River on a 4,200 km stretch, following its waters from the Delta region in Southern Vietnam all the way to its source in the Tibetan plateau.

There are 37 pictures that he took in the Mekong River basin at the exhibition. This exhibition is the part of photo exhibition series Photo Hanoi ’21, run by the French cultural institution, Institut Francais De Hanoi, and plans to display in Paris as well.

At the same time, they also have an online exhibition that reproduces the venue as 3D. Lam says “Mekong River connects land, culture, and people. I would like to express its beauty through my pictures.”

Opening hour is 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. until December 14.
