The way in which Manhattan-based travel photographer and writer Vivienne Gucwa discovered her love for photography was something of a fluke. Six years ago, armed with only an amateur point-and-shoot digital camera, she set off on walks from her Lower East Side apartment to relieve the stress of pre-med classes. As she explored the city, she began to capture the moments and post them on her new blog, “NY Through The Lens.”
As time passed and as her online following began to swell, Vivienne realized that her newfound passion for photography could become more than just stress relief.
In 2011, she joined a budding photography community on Google+, which she credits as one of the sources of inspiration to add writing and stories to her photos. And in 2014, some of those same stories and photos took the shape of a coffee table book titled, “NY Through The Lens,” which is available for purchase online and at most major book retailers.
Fast forward to today and Vivienne now has over 1.75 million G+ followers. She continues to document her travels to cities all over the world (including Paris, England and Tokyo) in her “Through The Lens” collections. You can view her collections here: https://goo.gl/NZrRLZ
So what’s next for Vivienne?
“I’d love to do a cohesive around-the-world trip and just capture all the places I’d still love to see,” she said. “Cuba, Patagonia and Scandinavia are at the top of my list, but there’s also a lot of places in the US I’d like to visit as well.” However, she won’t just be taking pictures. Vivienne tells us that video has become a new passion that she is excited to explore.
No matter where her passions take her, the moments she captures will be right at your fingertips in her collections.
