about olivia

Olivia Bee’s résumé reads like a fashion wish list: Hermès, Levi’s, Aritzia, Converse. Her work has been commissioned by the world’s most prestigious newspapers and publishing houses. These facts alone make her remarkable, but there’s another reason everyone can’t stop talking about the sought-after photographer: She’s 19 years old. 

The Portland native has gained major buzz for her dreamy pictures—often featuring her friends as subjects—and she’s showing no signs of stopping. (“I’d love to direct movies,” she told us. “That’s definitely where I’m going next.”)
