Viki Forshee was born and raised in upstate New York. Her grandmother was a chemist for Kodak, and she passed the love of photography on to Viki at a very early age. She moved to New York City in 1995 and began to work for well-known fashion magazines and advertising clients. In 2015, she founded, along with Masha Orlov, The Know – a cultural almanac. Additionally, Viki created “Wishful Thinker”, a gallery exhibition turned book featuring portraits of fifty inspirational women throughout the world.
She finds inspiration in making beautiful images and the intimacy between subject and photographer, chasing the moment of connection. She resides in Brooklyn with her husband, son, daughter, and family dog.
