Viviane, (b. 1978) completed her Master in 2003 at the National School of Photography in Arles, France. At the beginning of 2005, following the tsunami, she quit her job at the archives of Magnum Photos and bought a plane ticket to India. This first reportage changed her life. Her mind was made up from then on to become a documentary photographer. In order to continue her projects she first lived in India, in Thailand then in Australia before coming in Paris in 2012.
Since 2013, she is a member of home of photographers, Signatures. Viviane’s work and engagement were awarded with the Vocational Prize from the Bleustein Blanchet Foundation. In 2014, she is the laureate of the CANON Female Photojournalist Award supported by ELLE Magazine and Visa Pour l'Image.
