Opening Noirfoto Group Show "A Photographic Assembly" @ Noirfoto

Some might say 2020 is ‘cancelled’, but with an optimistic spirit nurtured in a space always filled with flowers and greens, we say it’s a year for opportunity: Noirfoto eagerly presents to you ‘Noirfoto Group Show: A Photographic Assembly’ - with many NEW things, more than ever!

In this exhibition, we feature the latest works of: Danny Bach (Bach Nam Hai) - the leading giclée printer in Vietnam - with the series ‘Goodman’s Treasure’; Pham Tuan Ngoc with ‘Chloris’ using lumen print technique, the first time in Vietnam; Tran Le Quynh Anh experiments different kinds of chemicals with the chemigram technique, also completely new in the country, in her ‘Muted’ series; last but not least, Tom Hricko - a well-established photographer and educator - brings in ‘80/20’ to celebrate his 40 years of experiences working in the US and Vietnam.

The first edition of ‘‘Noirfoto Group Show: A Photographic Assembly’ also introduces a completely new photography programme with many new activities and other surprises compared to the 3x4 before.

After our ‘legendary’ long holiday, Noirfoto is happy to come back with a more beautiful space promising many new, exciting, and professional events. In particular, partnering with VG-Lab, we design a programme that assembles not only new photographers but also established photographers without any limitations of background, age, subject, medium... to join in group exhibitions that last for a longer show period, with more activities to display the photographers and their works, more sales channels… The new photographers have a chance to not only receive unlimited mentorship but also to exchange knowledge and learn directly from experienced photographers.

And, naturally, the audience will have many chances to relish many rich and exquisite visual feasts, more than ever!
