Auction to sell country’s photographic history (April 14, 2003)


HCM CITY — Typical works from the last century of Vietnamese photography will form the main theme for an exhibition in HCM City.

The Exhibition and Auction of 100 Years of Viet Nam’s Photographic Masterpieces took 6 months to put together with works from the Sai Gon Giai Phong (Liberated Sai Gon) newspaper, Viet Nam Photographers’ Association and HCM City Photographers’ Association.

Along with exhibitions in Ha Noi, Hue, Da Nang and Can Tho, the collection will be widely published in book form, CD-ROM and VCD.

It is the first photo auction of its kind in Viet Nam and part of the proceeds will go to the Fund for Young Vietnamese Talented Photographers.
