Photo exhibition on Paris opens in HCM City

 

A photo exhibition on Paris opened today (March 2) in HCM City to introduce art lovers to the beauty of France's capital and to a photographic history of the country.

 

Presented by the French Consulate General in HCM City, the exhibition is part of a program of culture promotion and exchange between the two countries. 

 

According to curator Anne Cartier Bresson, the exhibition shows the city's grandeur as a modern cosmopolitan city as well as its uniqueness as a European city of a gentler era.

 

Around 82 black and white photographs, taken over seven decades from the 1920s to the 1990s by 40 photographers, were selected from the Paris Historical Museum, Carnavalet Museum, Contemporary Fine Arts Museum, Contemporary Fine Arts Fund of Paris and European House and will go on display on March 11.

 

Through the photo show, viewers can learn more about the history and development of Paris, as well as gain an understanding of the art of French photography which has grown prosperously in the twentieth century.

 

The photo exhibition is at the HCM City Fine Arts Museum, 97A Pho Duc Chinh District 1. Admission is free.
