A photo exhibition, themed Que Huong (Hometown), featuring more than 100 works of 35 women photographers is taking place in HCM City on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
The exhibition is an annual event that has been organised by the women’s division of HCM City Photographic Association for the past six years and is being organised at the association headquarters.

The theme this year is scenery, birds, flowers and ornamental fish.
The exhibition makes a chance for women photographers in the city to meet, network and share their experiences with other like-minded artists.
At the exhibition
“We have chosen scenery as the theme instead of everyday life, which is the usual, because we want to dedicate the exhibition to love for nature and through our images call for the protection of our environment,” said photographer Dao Hoa Nu.
HCM City has been home to many photographic campaigns by women. Its Hai Au club is the only all-women photography club in the country.
The exhibition displays the works of members of Hai Au club as well as female members of HCM City Photographic Association.
The exhibition lasts through March 12.
