A few days in the life of Independent co-director Liv Vaisberg

A few weeks ago, we gave one of our office throwaway cameras to fair director and independent curator Liv Vaisberg, asking her to click away whenever she saw fit. And, as you’re about to see, she took our Quicksnap on a trip across the Atlantic, capturing a few familiar faces along the way.
