Duy Nguyen, also known as Vitaboy, is an image-maker based in Oslo. Duy was born in Malaysia to Vietnamese parents. He migrated to Norway at the age of 4 with his parents and spent majority of his childhood on a small island on the west-coast of Norway. It was in Shanghai that he discovered his passion for photography in late 2017 when he was gifted a point-and-shoot film camera by a friend. Duy started off documenting the nightlife of Shanghai but has since gone on to explore fashion and fine art photography.
The series “First breath” is my visual interpretation of the story of Ophelia by William Sharespeare. I see my visual interpretation as a fan fiction as in my story, Ophelia never met Hamlet and instead falls in love with a girl. They spends their days drowning in love and lust.
