Liv Ferguson is a documentary photographer from Los Angeles, CA, currently living in Washington, DC. She received her BA in English Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and graduated with an MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University in December of 2018.
During her photography internship for Greenpeace USA in the summer of 2016, Liv pursued her interests in environmental issues and the non-profit sector, while also improving her photographic skills. Since the end of her internship, Liv has continued to work for Greenpeace as a contributing photographer, documenting events such as the Women’s March in both San Francisco and London, and the aftermath of the Santa Rosa fires in Northern California.

Through her images, Liv transports viewers to unknown and unfamiliar places, inviting the audience to participate in the journey. An avid storyteller, she enjoys the challenge of melding the right words with photographs in order to interpret reality. Her interests in topics such as women’s rights, the preservation of the environment, and animal welfare compels her to pursue a career working for nonprofits in the DC area.
