My name is Geneva Cegelis, and I am a graphic designer and photographer based in Los Angeles.
My photography portfolio spans documentary, travel, street, portraiture, and conceptual projects. Photography is a tool for me to process both what’s happening externally around me, and what’s happening internally within myself. It’s how I explore and express my ideas about life, culture and society. My work uses a combination of color, street, minimalism, emotions, and psychological complexity to express my view of the human condition.
I love doing creative work for nonprofits and organizations working in areas of social impact. I am particularly passionate about working with women and empowering them through my photos, and using photography to share stories on the behalf of people who are unable to use their own voice. My work has brought me to places as far as Bangladesh, and my photography has brought awareness to the issues of sex trafficking and child marriage.
Formally trained in graphic design, I have done design work for clients including Spotify, Disney, Redbull, Microsoft, Lionsgate, Johnson & Johnson, Salesforce, Beachbody, United Healthcare, the City of Los Angeles, and NPR. I am always on the hunt for my next travel adventure and photography project.
