HCMC’s first art photography street

The Ho Chi Minh City  Photographic Association (HOPA) has just opened the first art photography street with two topics of "The world through the lens of photography" and "The city I love".

This event takes place with the aim of celebrating the 40th founding anniversary  of HOPA  as well as promoting and introducing images of the country and people to locals and visitors to Ho Chi Minh City.

The first art photography street was kicked off with an exhibition featuring 176 works, including 116 award-winning photos at the first HOPA photo contest with the support of International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP), Photographic Society of America (PSA), Image Sans Frontière (ISF) and Vietnam Association of Photographic Artists (VAPA); and 60 outstanding those selected from photography competitions in the city.
