Description +-

Inspired by the famous Vermeer's painting with the same name, the Astronomer shows a woman with a map and a world glove imitating the Renaissance Italian pictorial style. Vive's shot seeks to display the female figure beyond that of which typically represented within art; rather than passive and objectified, the objects surrounding her cite the figure as worldly, intelligent and assertive.

Lídia Vives

Lídia Vives (Spain, 1991), established in Barcelona, is a photographer and visual artist who has seen her work published in magazines such as Esquire and Vogue Italy and has exhibited in numerous galleries, fairs and museums such as the Louvre in Paris. She has also collaborated with various musical groups, highlighting the Spanish band Love of Lesbian.

Vives has traveled around the world presenting her work since her first exhibition in 2013 and has received various international awards that have allowed her to expand her work worldwide, such as the gold medals in the Trierenberg Super Circuit, in 2018; the Fine Art Photographer of the Year of the Monochrome Awards, in 2021, and the Professional Photographer of the Year 2021 of the MUSE Photography Awards.

She currently works as an advertising and fashion photographer, as well as an artist, selling her works of art to collectors, decorators and architects (among others), also as a retouching teacher at the IDEP school in Barcelona.

Strongly influenced by Italian Renaissance and Baroque artists, in addition to some of her contemporaries, Vives' work is characterised by the use of colour and the pictorial environment that she uses when dealing with current issues, using, only in her most personal projects, the self-portrait. She is also known for hiding Easter eggs in her photographs, inciting the viewer to see further into her work, thus making her images like a game in which the mission is to discover all the hidden secrets.
