Born in Australia, Vien Tran began his career assisting Australia’s foremost photographers ranging from fashion to advertising and architecture. This immersive 7-year period cultivated his obsession with light, both natural and unnatural and informed the technical nature of his work. Preferring a minimalist approach, his love for beauty and cinema continue to fuel the romantic quality of his work for which he has become well known. Alongside his commercial and editorial work, his tenacious work ethic sees him shooting a multitude of ongoing personal projects for books and exhibitions. He is based predominately in Tokyo but regularly travels back to Australia for assignments. He is represented by YSC-inc in Tokyo and COCO PRODUCTIONS in Australia.
