Mariano Vivanco is a fashion photographer whose
rich cultural heritage informs his unique aesthetic.
Originally from Lima, Peru, he now divides his time between London and New York, regularly shooting for internationally renowned magazines such as, Dazed & Confused, Vogue Nippon, Vogue Homme Nippon, Numero, Another Magazine, Man About Town, Allure, Details, GQ Italy, L'Uomo Vogue, 10 and 10 Man.
Vivanco has also published four books for the Dolce & Gabbana label: Calcio (2003), which was the first book of its kind to capture the emergence of the soccer superstar, Milan (2004), Nationale (2006) and Milan Family (due for release). In 2006, he was also asked to shoot the French rugby team for the Dieux Du Stade Calendar for 2007.
In 2007, Vivanco held his debut solo exhibition at the Print Space Gallery in east London, supported by Dazed and Confused. Here, he exhibited two innovative editorial stories produced for Dazed entitled Cult and Artist. His second exhibition followed quickly, this time in Milan's Gold Restaurant. Here, he exhibited his images of the model David Gandy for Dolce and Gabbana's 2008 calendar, which fused the classical ideal of Michelangelo's David with modern ideals of masculinity.
In 2008, he published Ninety Five Chapel Market. A retrospective look at his first years in London, documenting the likes of Sienna Miller, David Gandy and Lily Cole to name a few, at the start of their careers.
Vivanco has worked with the likes of Eva Mendes, Dita von Teese, Cillian Murphy, Rupert Friend, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova and Sir Paul Smith. (all info from Mariano's website.)
