VIAN ROOS’ work is inspired by the everyday and ordinary life stories of South Africa’s people. He avoids styling photos, aiming to rather capture moments. He focuses on South African landscapes, buildings and the everyday activities of people. He finds it extremely important to keep his photographs as authentic as the moment in which they were captured.
Vian grew up in Bethlehem in the Free State, but currently lives in Pretoria. He is the art director of Farmer’s Weekly magazine and holds a BA Honours (Cum Laude) in Graphic Design from the Design School Southern Africa.
