New Jersey artist Viva Van Story is one of the most respected and busiest pin-up photographers in the country. Full of atmosphere and suggestion, her photographs perfectly capture a cool retro-raunch 1940s vibe. Her timeless images range from smoldering seduction to coquettish playfulness, as she depicts women who are sexy, but also empowered, ironic, and complex.

Her work headlined the Detroit Dirty Show, and she 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, ROCKRGRL, Tattoo, and Varla Magazine.  ~ KORERO BOOKS

Pablo Picaso said, €œA good artist borrows and a great artist steals.
Therefore, in my attempt at greatness, there'€™s no one I'€™ve victimized more than Viva Van Story.  Viva is truly my most favorite photographer. Her kick-ass attitude, dirty mind, Punk Rock approach to lighting and raw eye all add up to the most jaw-dropping, sexiest photos I'€™ve ever seen. Miss Story has gone light years past the typical "cheesecake" pin-up aesthetic and is fearlessly creating new levels of erotic photography.  Viva’s work would make Betty Page blush.  It has been awesome watching Viva'€™s work evolve over the last 7 years and I cannot wait to see where her art goes from here.  However, one thing is for sure, no matter where Viva'€™s creativity takes her, I'€™ll be there to steal from her. 
With much love and respect,
~Tyson McAdoo, Artist

Viva Van Story is an accomplished photographer who is being justly acclaimed as a worthy successor to Bunny Yeager. Van Story is taking the parameters of €œcheesecake€ to new levels and the result (to say the least) is haute-cuisine. Pretty damn hot haute-cuisine, actually!
~ROBERT DEL VALLE, The Real Detroit

Viva Van Story's photos are graced by the kind of drag strip dames and juice joint jezebels who populated the men's mags of the 1950s -- with a decidedly modern edge. It's no surprise, then, that with NYC's vibrant burlesque scene, she's the photographer of choice for a wide range of tassel-twirling temptresses, hot-rod honeys, and tommy gun tarts.
~Thomas S. Roche, Eroszine
