Liz Riviere has worked in art galleries, documentary film, major photography agencies and publishing houses from Paris to New York to Hong Kong.
At Smith College, Liz was co-editor of the long-standing annual poetry and art journal Grécourt Review and a gallery assistant at the Smith College Museum of Art. A summer internship in the Editorial Department at Magnum Photos, New York followed. During her junior year in Paris, she balanced internships with photographer Marc Riboud and Galerie Zabriskie while taking academic courses at the Sorbonne.
Upon graduation, Liz Riviere received a Smith College A.K. Watson Grant to intern with TIP-TV, a Paris-based documentary film production company devoted to producing films on international writers and artists for both Arté and TV5. That internship evolved into a full-time job assisting in all aspects of documentary film production from grant writing and budget proposals, to promotion; translating, transcribing, and editing; planning and organizing film shoots.
Riviere moved to New York City in 1998, working for Image Bank as an account executive for publishing markets – researching, licensing and negotiating photography rights to both academic and trade publishers in the Northeast. Image Bank merged under the Getty Images umbrella in 2001.
Liz Riviere joined Hard Press Editions ( Stockbridge, MA) in 2004, in both editorial and marketing roles.
