‘Land of Glances - Our similarities in our differences’ by French photographer Yan Levral comes to Idecaf, 28 Le Thanh Ton Street in District 1.

Levral is based in HCMC but his passion for photography takes him all around the world to work for magazines and photographic agencies.

Being in close contact with a lot of people throughout the world is the favorite aspect of his job.

“I have not seen two identical faces although we have similarities. For me, the camera is a useful tool helping me record all the meetings and moments that I have had the fortune of experiencing,” he said.

For the last 12 months he has been chasing his dream, a photo book about children’s glances around the world.

“I am lucky enough to visit so many countries and meet children from many places. But I found that, despite difference in geography, culture and races, children are all the same. We are actually all different but we are the same,” Levral added.

Yan has visited children in South Asia, Africa, India, the Himalayas and Europe. He will end his ‘Tour du Monde des Enfants’ (Children around the world) tour in South America at the beginning of next year.

The Consulate General of France and the French Institute in Vietnam (HCMC Antenna) have organized the photo exhibition which will be held from December 7-17.
