Ha Noi Yesterday and Today
an Exhibit of 68 Photographs

Color Photographs by Lawrence Dattilio
Black and White Photographs by Tran Quoc Khanh

The exhibit depicts the flow of life in Ha Noi during the past year.
This exhibit represents many new possibilities for fine art photography
in Vietnam. Both photographers applied directly to the Ministry of
Culture to have this exhibit rather than through an NGO. The exhibit
also honestly portrays Ha Noi so that its less than pretty or happy
face is shown along with some photos of the opposite.

The photographs are the result of direct collaboration and side by
side work between Mr. Khanh and Mr. Dattilio making this exhibit one
of the first to combine the talents of a Vietnamese and an American
citizen who was not an ex-patriate.

Tran Quoc Khanh is a Ha Noi photographer and has exhibited in Vietnam
on many subjects and is especially known for his observations on
contemporary social programs.

Lawrence Dattilio is an international fine art photographer with a
long history of exhibits from working in many countries around the
world. He is also a noted teacher of photography in the continuing
education field.
The exhibit is made possible from grants from:

The Underwood Foundation
The Ford Foundation in Vietnam
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary Knohl Suitcase Fund
Joanna Riopelle, Chicago, USA
