Kai Nguyen (/kaɪ  nuˈjɛn/)

Currently based in Hanoi, Vietnam, I'm a freelance photographer. I have experience in covering breaking news, features, portraits, and long-term documentary visual projects.

My work has been published in NPR and National Geographic, and daily campus newspapers such as The Daily Orange, The Newshouse, and magazines such as 360 Magazine, Baked, and other publications.


I always aim to be close, personal, and respectful to people. Currently, I'm a senior in the photojournalism program in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University.
