"Of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes forever the precise and transitory instant. We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished, there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." (Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1952).
With Vietnamese origins, Vivi is Belgian born and raised. At the age of seventeen, she left the comfort of the loving homes she grew up in to study abroad in the UK. From there, her life journey took a path she had never even envisioned. She has lived and called “home" the cities of Manchester, Barcelona, Paris and most recently and for the longest time, London.
Throughout the last year of her twenties, she has had the incredible chance to set foot on five different continents. It is from that year that most of her current photography originates. She rediscovered raw happiness - out of simple and pure things. The conscious effort was made to live in the moment and capture those passing instants with her camera.
