Update: Oct 12, 2016
Three photos by artist Nguyen Thu Thuy featuring Viet Nam’s Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelago are among 1,230 pictures on display at the ongoing fourth Biennial of Fine Art and Documentary Photography in Berlin, Germany.

Thuy is the only Vietnamese representative joining other 445 contemporary artists from 41 countries across the five continents to attend the event, which was opened on October 6 by the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards (WPGA).

Thuy’s three photos, entitled “Truong Sa ahead of the Storm’,”“Boys in Truong Sa” and “Peaceful Lotus on Truong Sa” were taken during her trips to the Truong Sa Archipelago.

Earlier, the pictures were selected for the final round of the seventh edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Female Photographers.

Two other photos of Thuy’s are also on display at the Berlin exhibition, featuring a section ofa ceramic mosaic mural in Ha Noi and a lotus mosaic in the Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa, both of them community art projects.

Under the theme “Emotions and Commotions across Cultures”, the exhibition represents different photography styles from diverse cultures on various media and topics ranging from wildlife and portraits to documentaries.

The event, run throughout October 30, honours talented photographers and helps them further their careers.
