Viviane Dalles nasceu em 1978, em Arles (França), onde se formou em 1993 na National School of Photography. Trabalhou nos arquivos fotográficos da Fundação Henri-Cartier Bresson e desde 2005 viaja por todo o mundo (Austrália, Índia, Camboja, Tailândia, Nepal, Bangladesh...) à procura de reportagens de grande impacto social. Tem fotografias publicadas em diversos jornais e revistas de todo o mundo, com destaque para o Le Monde, Newsweek, Time, ELLE e Marie Claire.
At the beginning of 2005, following the tsunami, Viviane quit her job at the archives of the Magnum agency and bought a ticket to the Tamil Nadu region in India. Here she witnessed the victims’ lives as the media coverage faded out. She spent more than two months in temporary shelters alongside families affected by the disaster. This first reportage changed her life and she decided to become an independent photographer. Since then Viviane works mainly in Asia (India, Cambodia, Thailand, Nepal, Bangladesh…). Her photographs have been published in the international press — Le Monde, Newsweek, Time, ELLE, MarieClaire, Le Monde Magazine among others.
Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, India 2007
«I made this photo of Dawa, 32 who arrived five months before to rejoin her husband who is studying in India. The Tibetan center welcomes the refugees for a period of about six months. They then have to find a place to live and work. The Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso was forced to flee the Chinese army in 1959. More than 150,000 Tibetans have crossed the Himalayas to settle in Dharamsala India. Every year more than over thousand Tibetans cross over the Himalayas illegally.» VIVIANE
