Over 50 photos exhibited at Institut Francais du Laos

More than 50 photos portraying natural landscapes, people’s lifestyles, art expressions, shot by photographers are being exhibited at Institut Francais du Laos in Vientiane.

Ms Florence Jeanblanc-Risler, Ambassador of France to the Lao PDR and representatives from Embassy of Swiss to the Lao PDR attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition at the institute yesterday.

People yearn for nature and fresh air but in contrast, they exploit and destroy it, a photographer explained the photo he has taken.

The event was jointly organized by Institute Francais du Laos, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and Birds follow Spring. The exhibition offers free entries to general public members through Feb 22.

Several activities including workshops on basic analog photography, developing analog photos, and photos and art conducted by a Lao photographer MaryJane (Thipphakesone Saylath) are being held on the sidelines of the exhibition.
