Portraits Nudes Flowers is a collection of photographs by Lima-born Mariano Vivanco (born 1975), one of the world’s leading editorial and advertising photographers. It includes portraits of some of the world’s most fashionable faces, including Cindy Crawford, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, Ricky Martin, Antonio Banderas, Emma Watson and Sam Smith, among many others. Nudes have been a component of Vivanco’s photography since his early studies in Melbourne, Australia, most notably his Candice Swanepoel and David Gandy nudes, both of which are featured here. Flowers have also been a longstanding subject of Vivanco’s photographic explorations, and this volume includes a never-before-seen series of Vivanco’s flowers. With a fresh and unexpected take on these highly popular subjects, Vivanco unifies his collection of portraits, nudes and flowers in a contemporary fashion.
