Nacho Rivera is intently aware of the way images tell a story. Working with a mindful and artistic approach to his subjects, the Spanish photographer delights in detail, highlighting the subtle and the unexpected. The thread of human experience runs through his work. From documentary and portraiture, to architecture and travel, he creates thoughtful and meaningful images with an emphasis on narrative.

”Photography helps me to understand myself and others from a humanistic perspective. I'm interested in the concept of connection: between people, the environment, and ourselves. I worry that modern society is becoming more individualistic, polarized and superficial. In response, my underlying curiosity about cultures leads me to explore the subtle links between them, raising questions about values such as empathy, respect and spirituality.”

Nacho's projects have been displayed in Museums, Galleries and International Photography Festivals including The Mediterranean Museum in Spain, The Hoxton Gallery and The Manchester Contemporary in the UK, amongst others.
