VIVO is a word that connotes “life” in several languages. We VIVO photographers strive to observe and visually interpret the life that surrounds us, and we hope, through our photography, to challenge and enrich conventional perceptions of our world. Our collective’s members carry diverse backgrounds and experiences, and their work spans and often blends the genres of street photography, documentary, photojournalism and fine art photography. We also think it’s essential to actively contribute to the ongoing international conversation about photography, so we welcome any inquiries to participate in public forums, festivals, publications and exhibitions.
