Livvy tackles some quite emotionally affecting subjects with a subtlety that is quite moving. There is an evocative atmosphere to the best work that is almost poetic in its visual lyricism. Most particularly Livvy has managed to avoid expressive cliché’s and arrive at images that are intriguingly suggestive and at times enigmatic.’
