Photos taken by Argentines tell stories about VietnamWednesday, July 10,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - An exhibition, themed “Stories from a camera”, opened at Ho Chi Minh City’s War Remnants Museum on July 9 to mark the 203rd anniversary of the Argentine Independence Day.
On display are 130 items, documents and photos telling stories about Vietnam in the wartime and peacetime. The photos were captured by Ignacio Ezcurra, who was a war correspondent of The La Nación working in Vietnam in 1968, and his granddaughter Luisa Duggan when she travelled to Vietnam after 50 years.
Ezcurra got lost in Sai Gon (now Ho Chi Minh City) on May 8, 1968. After five decades, his family came to Vietnam and presented his remembrances to the Ho Chi Minh City War Remnants Museum. Duggan used her grandfather’s camera to take photos.
The exhibition, which remains open to visitors until August 30, is expected to contribute to nurturing the friendship and cultural exchanges between Vietnam and Argentina.
