Vietnam of the 1950s in Photos
November 18, 2009   
Article's tools:

A stunning exhibition of photographs of 1950s Vietnam by the late Polish explorer Andrzej Zawada are on display at Warsaw's Fotoplastikon gallery.

Zawada, along with fellow Warsaw Mountaineering Club members Zdzisław Kozłowski and Jerzy Wehr, set out on an expedition to Vietnam in 1957. The expedition had been organized by the Institute of Geophysics at the Polish Academy of Sciences with the aim of setting up research stations. The expedition culminated in a daring ascent of Phan Xi Pang, the region's highest peak.

The phenomenal pictures taken during this expedition have been painstakingly restored as stereoscopic slides and are now on view at the Warsaw Fotoplastikon gallery.

Expedition to Vietnam, until Nov. 25
