VietNamNet Bridge – Fifty photos depicting Vietnam’s landscapes, people and culture will be displayed at an exhibition titled “Beautiful Vietnam” in Houston, Texas, USA form April 25 to 28.
Nguyen Viet Thanh and Hoang Hai Thinh are called “photo friends” because they were always together during business trips. They also share points of view in photography.
However, at the upcoming photo exhibitions in the US, the two friends will introduce photos of two different trends.

Viet Thanh has won many prizes at domestic and international photo contests. This is the fourth time his photos being displayed in the US while it is the first time of Hai Thinh.
