Mariano Vivanco star photographer
Born in Peru, Mariano now divides his time between London and New York and has become one of the most respected photographers on the fashion scene. From now iconic Dazed & Confused covers to the latest Dolce & Gabbana underwear campaign, he is the man behind some of the most sensual and remarkable fashion imagery that has been done in the past decade.
A true multi-talented creative, Mariano is most of all passionate about fashion, beauty, faces and music, which led him to experiment with new supports of expression for his creativity, such as films, books and exhibitions. But his latest project is the ‘Team Vivanco‘ blog, a more personal addition to his impeccablewebsite. Started with his assistant Phillip, the blog is like a backstage pass to his editorials and campaigns, an insight behind-the-scenes with a star photographer, that allow him to share his day-to-day experiences, travels, anecdotes and unseen images.
Read my exclusive interview with him on fabulous fashion resource F.TAPE, where Mariano reveals all about his inspirations, his ongoing collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana, and his personal views about the future of photography and changing perceptions of beauty. A passionate and fascinating journey into the world of a beauty-maker.
