About Lissa Rivera:

Lissa Rivera is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work has received multiple grants and honors and has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Rivera’s publications include 25 Under 25 Up-and-Coming American Photographers (PowerHouse Books) and The Collector’s Guide to Emerging Art Photography (Humble Arts Foundation). She grew up near Rochester, New York, home of Eastman Kodak, where as a child she was exposed to the treasures at the Eastman Museum. She received her BFA from The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and MFA at the School of Visual Arts. Since working professionally in the collections at The Burns Archive and The Museum of the City of New York (where she now teaches), Rivera has been fascinated with the social history of photography and the evolution of identity in relationship to photographic technologies. Beautiful Boy, Rivera’s latest project, takes her interest in photography’s connection with identity to a personal level, focusing on her domestic partner as muse.
