Alexandra Diez de Rivera is a Spanish- Argentine visual artist based in London working with photography.
Her work has been included in publications such as Vanity Fair, FT Magazine, Shanghai Daily, and Le Point and exhibited in galleries both nationally and internationally. She is represented in private collections in the UK, China, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Greece and UAE.
Diez de Rivera has been pushing the boundaries of digital photography with her theatrical tableaux and staged portraits in 'The Alternative Portrait Project' and is currently revisiting early analogue techniques, working at the intersection between photography, sculpture and performance at the Royal College of Art.
Privately commissioned family and group portraits of real people playing out their real lives, with a little imagination thrown in.
Ongoing series, by commission, since 2008.
Portraits of children in the style of Old Master paintings. The somber and emotionless expressions of children do not alarm us in renaissance paintings but meeting their gaze in a contemporary photograph is quite different and unsettling.
Ongoing series, by commission, since 2012.
