Titled “My Culture – Conversations in Open Spaces,” the exhibition showcases 150 outstanding photographs taken by ethnic people who have never taken a picture of their own daily life before.
The groups participating in the exhibition include the Si Hmong, Dao, Black H’mong, Red Dao, Muong, Thai, Pa Co, Van Kieu and Khmer.
“Since joining this project, I’ve come to know more about the culture of my own ethnic group, such as the rare herbal prescriptions or the meaning of the patterns embroidered on our clothes,” said Ly Thi Diu, 19, the youngest participant from the Dao minority.
The exhibited photos have received positive responses from visitors. Some were surprised while others were moved by what they saw.
“The exhibition shows how beautiful the minority groups in our country are,” a visitor wrote.
The exhibition runs until April 22.
Below are some photos taken at the exhibition:
