April 17, 2023

HÀ NỘI — A photo exhibition highlighting the start of a Western-style city in Southeast Asia is being held at an old villa in downtown Hà Nội. It displays the first 30 colour pictures of Hà Nội, which were captured by Leson Busy between 1915 and 1921. They describe the start of a Western-style city where local traditional characteristics co-existed with foreign factors imported from France. The exhibition is open until April 23 at No 49 Trần Hưng Đạo Street, Hoàn Kiếm District, Hà Nội. The project began in 2016, within the framework of cooperation between Hà Nội City and the Ile-de-France region, Hoàn Kiếm District and Paris Région Expertise (PRX).
