British actress Vivienne Chandler died in London, England on June 6, 2013 after a long battle with cancer. Chandler made her first appearance on TV in ITV Playhouse in 1970 but she immediately began acting in minor parts in a number of major early 1970s films including “Lust for a Vampire”, “Duck You Sucker” and Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (all 1971). She made several small appearances in the 1980s, including the music video for "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" by the British super group ASIA in 1983, and appeared in Babies in 1997 but since then she had become a professional photographer working in the U.S. and many countries across Europe including France, Italy and the U.K.. She went to University Paris Diderot between her film and television roles but during that time was always interested in the process of image-making.
As a photographer she reinvented her name and went by Holly Bush and later Holly Bund as her career changed direction. Photographing mainly children, she had exhibited in London, Oxford and Kent and sold to private collectors in France, England and Japan. Battling cancer, she lived in the new millennium in Paris, where she continued to work until her return to London where she died last June.
Vivienne was married and had two sons and a daughter Oonagh Bush, who is a photographer and designer in London.
