With the help of 12 photographers, the exhibition has come to fruition and opened in the capital city of Ha Noi on August 3.

The 120 photos on show express a love for the Spratly archipelago and respect for the people and soldiers who live and protect the islands as well as the national sovereignty.

“I believe that the Spratly archipelago is a holy place that people hold a deep love for in their hearts," she said.

“I want to connect and spread the love. Loving the Spratly doesn’t mean that you have to visit the islands.”

“When you love the Spratly, you just need help other people understand more about the archipelago and the people and soldiers who protect it day and night,” said Dong.

The photographers participating in the exhibition include Vu Quoc Khanh, Chairman of the Vietnam Association for Photographic Artists, photographer Le Nguyen from the southernmost province of Ca Mau, Thach Cong Thinh from the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang, Le Quang Dung from the central province of Nghe An and Nguyen My Tra from Radio the Voice of Vietnam.

The exhibition will run until August 7 at the Exhibition House, 93 Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Ha Noi.
