Liv is a documentary and portrait photographer from England. Her work is driven by research-led, self-initiated projects. She reveals personal stories with compassion, authenticity, power, and poetry.
“You see everything differently when you stop, spend time and listen to what people have to say. I explore peoples’ realities and experiences. Each image is a response to a genuine and intimate connection.”
Her projects include ‘Demo-crazy’: images and audio recordings reflecting the political unrest and uncertainty in Myanmar, and ‘Devil’s Garden’: a series of images that reflect on the external geographical landscape and the intimate internal perspective of the Saharawi people in exile in Algeria.
She has shot for charities and NGOS around the world including Coaching For Hope, South Africa; WIZO, Israel; The Testimony Project, London and Medical Action Myanmar.
She has shot campaigns for The Royal Opera House, Sadler’s Wells,
Penguin Books, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, Red Consultancy, Second Movement Opera, and fashion designer Sindiso Khumalo. She has produced work for record labels including Reclaimed Goods and Inch Time Records.
