Exhibition brings life in Bangladesh's capital closer to Vietnamese
A photo capturing a crowded street in Dhaka, Bangladesh, is seen at an exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City, August 30, 2019.

Photos depicting daily life in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, through the lens of three Vietnamese photographers are being on display at a two-day exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City.

Hai Thanh, Bow Letrinh and Tin Phung jointly held the 'First look of Dhaka' exhibition to showcase a collection of photos captured during their unplanned trip to the Bangladeshi capital, one of the famous cities in the world that remains lesser-known to Vietnamese people.

The three took the pictures in a free and impromptu fashion, only trying to capture every moment by their feelings and sentiments without any plan in mind that they were ceeating works for an exhibition.

It was not until the trio returned to Vietnam and went over their pictures that they decided to hold an exhibition to share with the public their views of the people and everyday life in the Southern Asian country.

'First look of Dhaka' was launched on Friday and welcomes visitors until the end of this afternoon, August 31, at 23B Tran Quang Dieu Street, in District 3.

Below are some photos at the exhibition.
