For over 13 years New Jersey based photographer Viva Van Story has been recognized as one of America’s hottest “pinup” style photographers. Drawing her inspiration from classic 1940’s and 50’s artists, she imbues her imagery with deep, saturated colors and complex backgrounds that go beyond classical compositions and draw the viewer into the scene. Although she primarily works in more erotic and sensual themes, she has a fine portfolio of hot rod and motorcycle based imagery and has made a name for herself in the “greasemonkey” circuit.
Van Story has released two books of her work, “Viva’s Pinups” and “SHEER” and has appeared in various group books. She has headlined the Detroit Dirty Show and her images have been featured in such publications as Bizarre Magazine, Car Kulture Deluxe, Deadbeat Magazine, DicE, Edge Detroit, Leg Show, New York Post, Ol’ Skool Rodz, Real Detroit Weekly, Traditional Rod and Kulture, ROCKRGRL, Tattoo, and Varla Magazines.
