A photo is a unique cultural artefact in the sense that it captures a moment in time. In doing so, it reveals the beauty and poetry of life by holding it still. This philosophy is encapsulated in the photography of Eric Huynh who highlights the everyday lives of ordinary people through his lens. Alliance Française de Kathmandu recently had the pleasure of hosting the artist for a photography workshop in April 2018.

The best photo captured by each participant during the workshop was displayed at an exhibition entitled Nepali Portraits and Landscapes at AF Kathmandu. Eric Huynh was present for the inauguration of the same on May 11. The exhibition was kept open for public viewing till June 29 and was widely appreciated by the photography aficionados of the region.

The initiative was made possible thanks to METROPOLE – a French association based in Paris that promotes international artistic exchanges and collective creation. The goal of the organisation is to create points of interaction amongst different cultures in the field of visual arts, expanding different modes of artistic intervention, and to highlight individual contribution in collective creation.
