Spanish photographer Ramón Fernández's Vietnam shots are on display in Navia, Spain.
Nearly 40 photos of Vietnam, which Fernández first visited in early 2007, highlight "the country's natural beauty, and its friendly, hospitable and hardworking people," Fernández told newswire Vietnamplus.
The photos, taken during the 64-year-old photographer's trips to Vietnam from 2007 through 2009, portray the local people of different ethnic groups as well as famous destinations in Vietnam from the north to the south, including Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh, the Hue imperial capital city in the central region and the Mekong Delta in the south.
Fernández said that the photo collection is among his favorites in a body of work that includes photoshoots in Spain, India, Myanmar, Cambodia, Peru and Cuba.
"Rice field" and "Train in Hanoi" and other shots have won awards in Spain and the photographer has submitted part of his portfolio to the Federation of European Photographers to be recognized as a Qualified European Photographer.
Fernández's Vietnam collection has also been exhibited in Barcelona, Spain, and four locations in the Asturias region. The current show is being held at the El Liceo Cultural Center in Navia, located in the Spain's Asturias Autonomous Region.
The Spanish photographer told Vietnamplus he plans to return to Vietnam for another photography trip by the end of the year.
