Peruvian born photographer Mariano Vivanco, grew up in New Zealand, where his passion for photography took flight. Inspired by the likes of Edward Steichen and Horst, Mariano moved to London in the year 2000 to pursue his passion for Fashion photography.
Since then, Mariano has become one of the World’s leading editorial photographers, as recognized by the Business of Fashion’s Top 500 people shaping the global industry of Fashion.
Often in black and white, his portraits, nudes, and editorial work (in both menswear and womenswear) apply the principles of pure photography; using simply light and shade, Mariano renders visible the natural spirit of the sitter.
Mariano has published several books, including “Ninety Five Chapel Market”, which is a great example of his daylight portraiture work shot with film. Three of his portraits, including one from this book, are in permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
