Argentina born, Naguel Rivero, studied film direction at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba. He continued his artistic journey through the fields of documentary and portrait photography in New York, and has been based in Paris for the past 6 years.
Naguel Rivero explores the history of the human being, his identity, his natural environment, and the social and cultural issues that we live in these times. His goal is to portray his characters in their environment with a cinematic sensibility and the use of natural light in themes that revolve around a sociocultural perspective. Whether his work is commercial, fashion related or personal, there is always a look that is honest to his roots and his legacy, connecting and traversing the context of the series.
We can see that in his latest campaign for Paul Smith (here photos and video at the end of the gallery: LINK), although it is a job for a brand, Naguel has his own stamp and interests always related to the sensitivity of the other, being his casting a priority and imposing his vision of radical fashion.
Among his most relevant clients and published editorials are Paul Smith, Vogue UA, Versace, Atmos, Carven, Revue, and others. In the year 2021, Naguel was named as one of the 20 relevant Photographers Worldwide that you cannot miss: ID Magazine, London (UK)
In 2022, Rivero was summoned by the prestigious eco-environmental magazine ATMOS, to propose a project, which was carried out and can be viewed at the following link: Atmos magazine, 2022
This year, he was named one of the 10 finalists for the Hyerès International Festival of Fashion and Photography, one of the most important art and fashion awards in the world. These will be delivered in the month of October, in the south of France, after the exhibition of the project presented by Rivero, Red Humana, a project carried out in his hometown, Córdoba, Argentina.
Naguel has worked with many important and established fashion editors such as Imruh Asha, Harry Lambert, Berenger Pelc, Gary David Moore, Ola Ebiti, Marco Ribeiro, Samia Giobellina, etc. Some of his most important clients and publications were Versace, Carven, Atmos magazine, V magazine, Vogue UA, Alexander Mcqueen, Paul Smith, Revue, Carcy Heroine, Hero, Autre, among others.
We can also highlight its continuity after 3 years collaborating with Marco Ribeiro, a Brazilian designer based in Paris. Together, they developed numerous projects that were highly approved by the fashion circuit, from Manifestó, which was a project protesting for BLM, published by DAZED magazine; as well as “Dignity” that was published in Carcy MAGAZINE, where an actress walks barefoot in the streets of Paris, wearing a performance piece styled by Imruh Asha. They also collaborated with Harry Styles, for his Pleasing brand under the direction of Harry Lambert, among others.
Rivero has worked in recent years on observational documentary photography projects in Bolivia, Argentina, among others, and is currently focused on a docu-fiction fusion, mixing the spontaneous and unique nature of documentary with a subtle game of fiction, where he works with professionals and non-professionals, by uniting its three main disciplines: photography, fashion and cinema.
