Vivian Ewing (b. 1992) was raised on Martha's Vineyard, MA and earned a BFA in photography from the Maine College of Art in 2015. Using both text and images, Vivian makes work to invoke "what happens on islands and what happens when a person is an island unto themselves." Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently in Magenta's Flash Forward Festival in Boston, MA and in Hard Lines at Doomed Gallery, London. Her work in writing and photography has been featured in print as part of Papersafe Magazine's The Wild and Meanwhile Press' Locals magazine. Vivian has worked as an exhibiting artist, a writer, a journalist, a photojournalist, an editor, a publisher and a curator.
