Vietnam's first photo-shop turns 135 (April 06, 2004)

Hundreds of photographers gathered in Thanh Luong village in Thua Thien-Hue province on Sunday to celebrate the 135th anniversary of Cam Hieu Duong, the first photo-shop in Vietnam.

The group met at the house of worship of the photo-shop's former owner, Dang Huy Tru, who was a mandarin of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945).

He came into contact with Hong Kong's photography for the first time in 1865 when he was sent to China as the Nguyen Dynasty's envoy.

Two years later, Tru went to Guangdong and bought equipment for a photo shop which was set up on Thanh Ha street in Hanoi February 2, 1869.

That date was chosen by the Vietnamese Photographers Association as Vietnam's Photographers' Day.

During the celebrations on Sunday, Hue photographers suggested that photographers contribute to a collection to fund a copper statue of Dang Huy Tru. (VNS)
