Photo Hanoi ‘21 is a month-long program initiated by The French Institute in Hanoi – L’Espace that aims to boost public engagement with different aspects of photography. Throughout the summer month of May, a series of exhibitions, talks and workshops will take place across several cultural centers, bringing diverse practices in making and displaying photographs from Vietnam, France, and beyond. This augural open theme edition presents works created with analog and digital tools, presented via online and physical platforms, and looked at from a wide range of perspectives.
Educational activities welcome participants across age, gender, and level of expertise, stemming from the belief that photography is best enjoyed by all. Developed during a time of prolonged travel restrictions, the program reflects the desire to connect through a shared visual language that proves to be stronger than ever.
The French Institute in Hanoi – L’Espace is a place for cultural and art events, also to study and accumulate knowledge about France. With a wide range of events, conferences, film screenings and French classes, it has been a familiar spot of Hanoian cultural life for many years.
