HCM City-After 11 Summers

Until June 27, 10 am – 05 pm, 
Vin Galllery, 35/8 Nguyen Van Dau Street, Binh Thanh District, 
From the organizer:

A solo exhibition of author Nguyen Quang Bach titled ‘After 11 Summers’

The exhibition features a collection of works that unfold like a film reel, portraying intimate stories of family, separation, and the lingering emotions of those left behind.

‘After 11 Summers’ revolves around the memories of Bach’s grandmother, a central figure throughout his childhood, and the period following her passing. Through his vivid and bright photography, Bach transforms a seemingly somber theme into a tender and reflective narrative. In addition to new works, Bách has incorporated photographs taken by his grandfather of his grandmother from the family album, highlighting the enduring love of those who remain for those who have passed, creating a seamless connection between the past and the present. Prior to this exhibition, Bách published a photo book titled “One Summer with a Late Farewell,” which was well-received by the photography community and showcased at the ‘Imaging Rhizome’ exhibitions in both Vietnam and Japan.
