Liz Calvi

 b. 1990, Connecticut USA

based in London

I'm currently working towards my MFA (expected 2019) at Goldsmiths in London.

After studying at Pratt Institute, I received my BFA from the University of Hartford in 2012. I use photography to explore my interpersonal relationships and ask questions about sexuality and the idea of gender identity. Drawing from dreams and memories, I create tableaus of family and friends conveying our shared intimate experiences. 

My photography has been exhibited widely and is in several public & private collections. I received the Onward Compé photography award curated by Elinor Carucci in 2015. I've given lectures and artist talks at the University of Connecticut, The Connecticut Women’s Historical Society and the Onward Compé photo festival. My work has been featured on PDN, CNN, Huffington Post, and Der Greif among others. I also do editorial and advertising work.
