Alexandra Diez de Rivera is a Spanish-Argentine visual artist based in London working with photography. She is interested in psychology, memory, trace and the body. Her work is characterized by psychologically ambiguous objects and spaces that are empty but charged and marked by the passage of people and time.

Diez de Rivera’s work has been featured in publications such as Vanity Fair, FT Magazine, Vogue, and Le Point and exhibited in galleries both nationally and internationally. She is represented in collections in Europe, China, the US and UAE. Diez de Rivera’s, Paupers’ Ward Bed 20, was selected for Photo Open 2023 at the RWA in Bristol. She was also selected for 'London Grads Now 21' at the Saatchi Gallery in London and the Travers Smith CSR Art Programme. Diez de Rivera was invited to join the ‘Fair Art Fair’ community in 2021.

Diez de Rivera holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Communications and Graphic Design from Central Saint Martin’s University and a Master’s degree in Photography from the Royal College of Art. Exhibitions include, 'After the High Tide' at Cromwell Place and 'Small is Beautiful' at Flowers Gallery in London.

Prior to her Master's at the RCA, Diez de Rivera developed The Alternative Portrait Project
