Néstor Rives on the Postgraduate Diploma in Photography and Editorial Design
Néstor Rives, photographer and alumnus on the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, talks of his recent projects on the Postgraduate Diploma in Photography and Editorial Design, of which he is also a former student.
The bond constructed with the characters photographed, the process of taking their photographs, how he managed night-time visits to industrial estates, fear, friendship, death and loneliness are some of the subjects that emerged in the debate with the students.
Néstor Rives (Sant Just, Barcelona 1988) is a graphic designer and photographer. He has worked on photographic projects since 2013. In the majority of his work, he uses a hard and dark look aimed at documenting everyday subjects we don’t normally pay attention to but that, whether we like it or not, make up what we are as persons and as a society.
