This first volume is dedicated to the photographic practice of Swiss model Vivienne Rohner.
Since the month of October 2021, Vivienne carried her camera during all her interactions with the house of Chanel. Airports, hotel rooms, waiting rooms, fittings, leisurely walks with her dog Skipper, fashion shows and advertising campaigns, her camera never left her side.
Christopher Niquet has long admired Vivienne’s strong esthetic sense and how she applies it to all layers of her life. From the clothing she wears, the choices she’s made with her modeling career to the books, music and movies she consumes.
The resulting images are beautiful abstracted portraits of this bond between her and the Parisian fashion house. Much like fellow photographer Vivian Maeir, Vivienne Rohner doesn’t put herself front and center in her images, but uses her surroundings to create an emotional landscape. Through reflections, empty spaces, blurry crowd scenes, details of her daily life, she uses the mundane to tell a bigger story, one of a young woman coming into her own.
