Vivien Allender - 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 continues to reflect that early experience. She currently lives
and works in New York but loves traveling for work and pleasure and has shot in 39+ countries across the world for her ongoing Global T(w)eens Project as well as other projects.
