Exhibition features Vietnam’s lands and people through lens of Hungarian photographer

NDO – A photo exhibition entitled ‘Vietnam’s heartbeats’ opened in Budapest, Hungary, on January 10 as the first event in 2020 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Vietnam – Hungary diplomatic relations (1950 – 2020).


Vividly capturing the life, lands and people of Vietnam, the photos on display were taken by Hungarian director – photographer Béla Bernolák when he joined a delegation of Hungarian journalists to produce a film on Vietnam in 2019.

Bernolák recounted that although it was his first time to visit Vietnam, he was welcomed so warmly that he felt no distance in geography and culture between the two countries.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Hungary Nguyen Tien Thuc spoke highly of the development in the Vietnam – Hungary multifaceted cooperation over the past seven decades, particularly after the two countries lifted relations to a comprehensive partnership.

He also expressed his appreciation for the friendly sentiments and valuable support from Hungarian people, and photographer Béla Bernolák in particular, towards Vietnam.

The exhibition will be open to public for free until February 2 at Ujpest Gallery, 66 Arpad, Budapest.
