30/11/2016 - Called ‘La Línea Roja’, The project is a series of captivating light installations, in which Nicolas Rivals speaks about the man’s connection to nature.

"A red line woven over a journey through Spain, to connect Man with nature.

A red line to fix a moment of poetry. Unreal scenes which existed for a night to disappear in the morning.

An installation left as a proposition to the natural world.

A luminous harmony between will and chance.

Between tribute and sacrilege.

Between the beautiful and the strange.

An aesthetic research on shapes engaging in a dialogue with an asymmetrical nature". 

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.
