Viviane Dalles


Viviane, (b. 1978) completed her Master in 2003 at the National School of Photography in Arles, France after which she worked on iconic photographic archives at the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation. At the beginning of 2005, following the tsunami, she quit her job at the archives of Magnum Photos and bought a plane ticket to India. This first reportage changed her life. Her mind was made up from then on to become a documentary photographer. Viviane’s work and engagement were awarded with the Vocational Prize from the Bleustein Blanchet Foundation (France). Since 2013, she is a member of home of photographers, Signatures.
