From Viveca's website "I am a self-taught Fine Art photographer, with a special fascination for small details, for lost, abandoned, poignant and generally broken objects, and also for darkness contrasting with light, both in a physical and emotional sense.
Many of my illustrative images simply evolve as I am working on them - I start off with a quite straightforward idea of what I want to achieve but am always willing to venture wherever the photograph wants me to go, as I overlay multiple images together or add textures, scanned documents as new layers, and subtle shading. Two photographs may blend together in a way that I could not have previously imagined, and this is one of the things that I find so exciting and all-consuming when I work, to produce a final image that perhaps a little bit different, that invokes emotion in the viewer and makes them question their sense of the world as they know it.
In June 2014 I was awarded a Fellowship Distinction by the Royal Photographic Society, following on from an Associateship Distinction in June 2011 and a Licentiateship Distinction in 2010. I am Honorary Secretary of the Visual Art Group."
