Peruvian born photographer Mariano Vivanco, grew up
in New Zealand, where his passion for photography
took flight. Inspired by the likes of Edward Steichen

to pursue his passion for Fashion photography.
Since then, Mariano has become one of the World’s

of his portraits, including one from this book, are in
permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery in
