Sitter in 4 portraits
Artist associated with 83 portraits
Britain's first woman press freelance photographer, Livingston photographed many suffragette marches and the movement's key personalities. Educated at Claremont, Margate, she took her first photographs in 1903, becoming official photographer to H.M Household Brigade, 1904-39. For thirty years she photographed the teams and action of the annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race. A selection of her best work was shown in the NPG`s 1994 exhibition Edwardian Women Photographer. As well as the NPG's collection of her vintage prints and original negatives, other work can be found in the Museum of London, Imperial War Museum, Chelsea Library, and the Gersheim Collection, University of Texas.
