The exhibition, which remains open to visitors to April 15, is among the activities in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Vietnam-France diplomatic ties, and the 10th anniversary of the bilateral strategic partnership.

On display are 28 photos by photographer Lam Duc Hien, a French Vietnamese who was born and grew up along the banks of the Mekong River in Laos.

Since childhood, Hien, born in 1966, has developed a close attachment to the river. He has travelled the river over a 4,200-km stretch, following its waters from the bustling river delta in Vietnam all the way to its source in the snow-covered Tibetan plateau.

Hien has won numerous awards, including the Leica Prize, the Great European Award of the city of Vevey, and the World Press Photo, among others.
