Viviane Dalles is a French photographer, who graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie (Arles) in 2002. She subsequently traveled to Africa to work for the Festival of African Photography in Bamako (Mali), then worked for the Henri Cartier Bresson Foundation in Paris and with photographers from the Magnum agency, helping to edit and develop their archives.

At the end of 2004, she traveled to India and since then has covered stories in more than ten of its states.

Viviane is currently based in New Delhi. Her clients include LeFigaro Magazine, Le Monde 2, La Tribune, Paris-Match, Internazionale, Le Figaro, Le Monde, The Guardian, among others. She is represented by the REA agency (Paris).

I would highlight her compassionate coverage of the Tibetan communities living in exile in Dharmasala and Mundgod (Karnataka) titled Tibetans In Exile: Suspended Identity.
