Nicolas Rivals is a French photographer based in Paris. He is a member of the "Prisme Noir"collective.
A graduate of ETPA in 2013, his work is a combination of visual art reflecting his aesthetic universe and staged photography reflecting on Man’s relationship with the World.
In an almost obsessional desire for rigour and control, he explores the possibilities for the expressive potential of his photographs without any formal limits. With this in mind portraiture, architecture, photographic documentary, as well as creative work may be considered as different parts of his artistic discourse.
Winner of the First Prize at ETPA 2013, he is currently exhibiting in the Manifesto Festival at the Photon Gallery.
