Tri Duong – The Rocky Mountain Collegian

Originally from Vietnam, Tri Duong moved to the United States with his family on Christmas Eve in 2007. At his family reunion, he met a photographer from the Loveland Reporter-Herald and was immediately interested in the camera and the photographer’s lens.

Since this introduction, Tri has been interested in photography and the role it plays in its existence. In fifth grade, Tri took her first photography course and has since fallen in love with documentary style photography. The two favorite photos of Tri he has ever taken are these two landscape photos of Lake Loveland.

Tri loves these shots because “it wasn’t about the look of the images but the meaning behind them. At the most difficult time of my life, I always turned to photography and captured the moment when I felt most alive again.

Now studying journalism with a minor in chemistry, Tri hopes to continue in documentary work.

Protesters outside the Colorado State Capitol raised their hands on March 27. The Demonstration to End Asian Hate Crimes featured speeches, poetry and music from the Asian American and Pacific Islander community in response to increased hate crimes against these communities.
