The 465-page book, Mien Co Tich (Fairytale Land), includes 95 black-and-white and colour pictures selected from his collections.

Phien, a member of the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP), began working in nudes 10 years ago.

“I’ve worked very hard to highlight the beauty of the female body as well as promote the art to the public,” said Phien.

Phien is one of the country’s leading photographers who regularly shoot nudes. But they have faced prejudice from society against their nude photos.

In 2007, photos from his Springtime by Thai Phien, the country’s first photo book of nudes, were shown at an exhibition in HCM City. 

The Viet Nam Association of Photographic Artists gave the book an award, and the Voice of Ho Chi Minh City recognised the book as one of the city’s top 10 cultural events of 2008.

However, later, Phien was not allowed to hold a similar exhibition of his nude photos in Hanoi and Hue.

Mien Co Tich is his third photo book of nudes. 

“Nude photography has evoked conflicting opinions from the public for several decades, even though nude paintings have been accepted. Photographers face challenges as they seek to develop their art,” said Hao Nhien, a photographer who has more than 20 years of experience but only five years in shooting nudes.

Last year, Nhien organised the country’s first photo exhibition of female nudes at the HCM City Fine Arts Association.  

The event, titled Tao Tac (Beauty), featured 50 black-and-white works selected from his collection of more than 500 photos.

More than 2,000 copies of Phien’s Mien Co Tich, published by Hong Duc Publishing House, are available at bookstores.
