Born in Melbourne Australia, Vivien Allender moved to Tokyo at the age of 17 and quickly mastered Japanese. She spent many years living and working in Asia. Japan had an indelible influence on the evolution of her aesthetics, and today her photographic style--fresh, clean, wholesome and timeless--reflects that unique experience. Vivien recently completed a Masters Degree in Visual Arts at Victoria College of the Arts at Melbourne University. She currently lives and works in New York but loves traveling for work and pleasure and has shot in various countries throughout Asia, Europe, Australia and the Americas.
