Emma Livingston is a British Argentine artist photographer based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Nature in its many forms is the protagonist in her work : from the landscapes of the high pre-Andean plains, to portraits of single trees on the sidewalks and the surface of the oceans and rivers she visits. Photography is a means for Emma to pay homage to the natural world: she is concerned about its vulnerability and yet weaved within her work are the ideas of its resilience, philosophy and wisdom. She is interested in the symbolism and polarities represented by the landscape and its elements; in the stories of their past, present and future; and in the exploration of our relationship with the natural environment.
Emma's work has been in solo and group exhibitions in galleries, cultural centres and museums in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, the United States, France and Germany, and has been published in various international magazines including European Photography, NextLevel, Lensculture and Loupe. She was nominated for the Prix Pictet EARTH competition, and was awarded first prizes in the ‘London Photographic Association’ and ‘Px3’ competitions. She was also nominated a ‘Discovery of the FOTOFEST Meeting Place’ and a ‘PDN 30 Photographer to Watch’ in 2010 and 2009 respectively. In September 2017, she spent a month in an artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center.
