Photographic exhibition ''Les marchands ambulants et les cris de la rue à Hanoi''

On Friday, September 13, the photographic exhibition Les marchands ambulants et les cris de la rue à Hanoi was inaugurated at the Hanoi French Institute - l'Espace, in the presence of Duong Thi Thuy (Espace, Institut français de Hanoi), Nicolas Warnery (Ambassador of France to Vietnam), Olivier Tessier (head of the EFEO Centre in Ho Chi Minh City) and Thierry Vergon (director of the Institut français de Hanoi, l'Espace) (from left to right in the photo).

The exhibition presents a collection of sketches, drawings and water colours made by fifteen Vietnamese students at the Indochina School of Fine-Arts and their teacher, Ferdinand de Fénis. They portrayed with talent the small world of street vendors who criss-crossed the streets of the capital at first light to sell a variety of fruits, vegetables and snacks.

Photographs of same period from the EFEO’s photo library are also displayed as part of an interactive installation. Scenes of daily life in Hanoi in the past may be observed through a combination of light boxes, projections and installations.
