An exhibition displaying over 250 photos on Bru-Van Kieu ethnic minority people in Vietnam by a Hungarian scientist kicked off in Ho Chi Minh City on February 21.

The event is jointly organised by the Consulate General of Hungary in HCM City and the municipal Fine Arts Museum.

Hungarian Consul General Baloghdi Tibor said the exhibition features the daily life and belief, and tradition of Bru-Van Kieu people, a typical ethnic group living in upland areas in Southeast Asia, and one of the 54 ethnic minority groups in Vietnam.

The event shows close cooperation and exchange between Vietnamese and Hungarian scientists in particular, and other cooperation fields in between the two nations, he stressed.

Vargyas Gabor, author of the photos, said his works were taken between 1985-1989 during his field trips in Khe Sanh of the north central province of Quang Tri within the cooperation framework between the two countries’ academies of science.

He said that through the exhibition, he wants to tell visitors a story about faith and life.

The event will run through February 28, and then it will move to Khe Sanh. All of the photos will be presented to Quang Tri province after the exhibition.
