An exhibition featuring 34 photographs taken by Australian photographer Les Horvat depicting the breadth of Vietnam's cultural, historical and literal landscape opens on June 4 at Bui Gallery.

In the exhibition, titled "Momentum of the River's Flow," the artist represents Vietnam as ever-changing and forward marching, the reasons behind his multi-angled consideration of historical sites, Bui Gallery said in its introduction.

"It's a reference to the inevitable and unstoppable power of Vietnamese society," Les Horvat said in a released statement. "A society that seeks to move forward, no matter what the obstacles, no matter what the risks and no matter what the challenges as in the inexorable flow of the metaphoric waterways that lie at its heart."

The exhibition will be on view until July 5. The Bui Gallery opens daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 23 Ngo Van So Street in Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi.
