Portraits Nudes Flowers by Mariano Vivanco
Fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco offers us an exclusive preview of his new book ‘Portraits Nudes Flowers’, highlights of his last ten years of work.
Mariano first came to our attention shooting Dolce & Gabbana’s sexy underwear campaigns starring David Gandy. Since then the Peruvian snapper has gone on to shoot the likes of Rihanna, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Emma Watson, and a throng of top models!
The coffee table book presents a beautiful collection of celebrity portraits, sensual nudes, and ornate flowers with foreword by Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana, and introduction by the man with the sharpest pen in fashion – Tim Blanks.
Proceeds from the sale of the book go to Amantaní, a British charity that benefits children in the highlands of Mariano’s homeland of Perú.
“Beauty reveals itself in changing forms. It can be everywhere around us. We instinctively feel its impression through sensory rapture that leaves us breathless. And yet as spontaneous as our perception of beauty may be, it is no simple matter to discern its essence – and less simple still to represent it.
The ability of an artist, in all times and places, is expressed through this quest. ‘Portraits Nudes Flowers’. It is like exclaiming ‘Here is beauty!’ thanks to the simplicity of the juxtaposition of these elements – and in the name of one of the most talented and communicative photographers of our day.” – Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabanna.
Portraits Nudes Flowers (£38.50 / 45€ / $51) is available now at damianieditore.com/PNF and in stores worldwide this fall.
