Artist Bio

Viviane Sassen is a dutch photographer that is prevalent in both the fashion and fine art world. She has had multiple solo exhibitions, group projects and publications. Sassen lived in Kenya as a child but now lives in Amsterdam. She is renowned for her use of geometric shapes, often abstractions of bodies. Sassen remains conscious of challenging the over-stereotypical images of famine and poverty in Africa by ensuring the prevalence of contemporary elements in her photographs. Sassen says, "You should always be able to judge a photograph on different grounds, on political, social, emotional, but also on personal grounds".
