SHEVivien Sassen

A quick taste of the photographer’ upcoming
exhibition at Galleria Carla Sozzani


Galleria Carla Sozzani presents SHE, Vivien Sassen upcoming exhibition from September 20th to November 12th, 2017. Born in Amsterdam in 1972, for more than twenty years Sassen has been devising her personal visual codes in fashion, portraiture, and visual arts. Imbued with rarefied atmospheres, her photographs are often marked by long shadows, silhouettes and high contrasts. Suspended between reality and fiction, her images suggest unusual, almost impenetrable dimensions that rise from everyday life.
With a body of work between waking and dreams, Sassen embarked on an international career in fashion photography, but she belongs to a generation of photo-artists who do not make a clear distinction between personal research and their commercial and editorial work. For her the photograph is almost always a personal view.
