Beauty of lotus and charity come together

Photographer Tran Bich will bring the beauty of the lotus and the beauty of charity to his exhibition, which include 60 unique photos, in Ho Chi Minh City next week.

To be held from July 25 to August 5 at the peak of the unique Bitexco Financial Tower at 36 Ho Tung Mau Street in District 1, the event themed “Viet Lotus – Lotus Life 17” is being organized mainly to raise funds for the Heart Understanding Fund.

All proceeds from ticket and photo sales will be donated to the fund to provide help to children with inborn heart diseases, street children and children from underprivileged families.

In the last three years, the photographer has taken photos of lotuses and organized 16 previous exhibitions in different venues across Vietnam such as Hanoi, Hue, Gia Lai, Da Nang, Ca Mau, Dong Thap, Da Lat and Ho Chi Minh City.

So far he has collected over VND2.5 billion (US$120,200) through these events.

His passion for taking photos of lotuses sparked in 2009 after he saw the beautiful flowers and their elegant smell at the lotus pond in Ke Ga in the central province of Binh Thuan’s Phan Thiet District, Bich said.

Ever since, he has traveled to many localities across the nation where lotuses are grown; from the provinces of Long An, Dong Thap and Can Tho in the Mekong Delta to Nha Trang, Quang Ngai, Quy Nhon, Thanh Hoa and Nam Dinh in the central region; and Hanoi and Bac Ninh in the north.

The exhibition will run from 9:30 to 21:30 with ticket prices of VND200,000 ($10) for adults, and VND130,000 for children from 4-12 years old and elderly people over 65 years of age.

Followings are some photos of lotuses taken by Tran Bich to be displayed at the exhibition:
