NDO – An exhibition, featuring photos on General Vo Nguyen Giap that were captured by veteran journalists Tran Dinh and Nguyen Dinh Toan, officially opened on January 2 in Hanoi.

On display are six large-frame colour photos by Tran Dinh and 33 black-and-white photos in 35x50cm size by Nguyen Dinh Toan.

The showcased photos were taken during the last nearly two decades of the General’s life (from 1992 to 2010), showing his optimistic spirit and ambitions to devote to the nation.

Visitors to the exhibition will have a chance to learn more about his daily life as well as his strong attachment to compatriots, soldiers, researchers, artists, reporters and international friends.

Among the exhibits, many photos were published in many articles and publications, while others were just introduced to the public for the first time.

The exhibition will last until January 13.
