Twenty-one photos on display were taken by Vera Mazhirina during nearly a year of working and living in Vietnam. The Russian photographer spent lots of her time visiting coastal fishing villages in the central region to capture the locals’ daily and spiritual life.

Mazhirina said she was most impressed by Vietnam’s cultural space and sea, which was the reason why she has chosen such a theme for her first exhibition in the country.

Getting familiar with the camera since she was 16, Mazhirina is now a photojournalist majoring in parliament news.

Gennady Toluzakov, a visitor, said the exhibit impressed him, adding that he wants to travel to Vietnam’s sunny beaches and catch fish with locals.

According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, before COVID-19, the number of Russian tourist arrivals in Vietnam grew by 30 percent annually on average.
