Vietnamese journalist champions Thai fine art photo contest

(VNF) – Viet Van, a Vietnamese photo journalist from Lao Dong (Labor) Newspaper, has won the first prize of the 6th Chang International Fine Art Photo Contest in Thailand.

Viet Van's winning series of photos, themed “Filled Nostalgia”, depict memories of the photographer’s mother – Assoc. Prof. Le Thi Duc Hanh – for her late husband – researcher of folk theater Tran Viet Ngu.

The winning series of photos by Viet Van describe his mother's “Filled Nostalgia” for his dead father.

Through his photos, the old lady’s nostalgia for her husband is conveyed through the artifacts that remind her of him like “ao dai”, the Vietnamese traditional tunic she wore on their wedding day in 1965, his love letter to her during wartime, his old typewriter and more.

The photos were part of Viet Van’s personal project, named “My mother” (Part 2).

The award ceremony is scheduled at the end of this year in Bangkok, Thailand.

The Chang International Fine Art Photo Contest by the Royal Photographic Society of Thailand was initiated in 2011 by Thai Beverage Public Co., Ltd and is an annual event organized in collaboration with The Royal Photographic Society of Thailand, aiming to promote and support fine art photography and photographers at an international level.
