An exhibition of photographs depicting cultural relics from ancient Indochinese capitals opened at the French Culture Center in Hanoi, L’Espace, Monday.

“Communities through Time,” by French photographer Sebastian Laval provide a window into the life and culture of people in Hue (Vietnam), Angkor (Cambodia), and Luang Phabang (Laos)

Laval’s floating houses, flickering cooking fires, smiles of kids, and the austere expression on the face of a Co Tu man capture the enigma of these Southeast Asian countries.

Laval, who lives in Poitiers, France, became a professional photographer in 1993.

His first exhibition in Vietnam last January featured 36 pictures of minorities living in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue’s mountainous areas.

He visited the country first in 1995 and says its various ethnic minorities have become a source of inspiration for his works.

The exhibition will go on until February 11 and admission is free.
