Mariano Vivanco

Photographer, other credits: Art Director, Director


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
