Viviane Sassen

Born in 1972
Born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Lives and works between the Netherlands and Africa.

After studying design at Arnhem College of Art and photography in Utrecht, Viviane Sassen soon made a name for herself in fashion photography, working for Vogue, Purple, i-D and Another Man. In 2002, she decided to go back to Africa, to retrace the memories of her childhood spent in Kenya, where her father had worked as a doctor. Since then, she has travelled all over this continent that fascinates her and has brought back series entitled The Sun Sees Everything, Flamboya and Ultra Violet, all impregnated with a spellbinding “magical realism”.
