  • Warawar Wawa在艾马拉语中意为“星星之子”,该作品借安托万·圣·埃克苏佩里的《小王子》来表现现代安第斯文化。里弗聚焦玻利维亚,探索了不同文化在整个历史过程中是如何受到外国摄影控制和削弱的,以及它们如何因异国情调而受到排斥。
      里弗获得了许多奖项,如马德里国际摄影和电影中心(EFTI)摄影奖学金、拉巴斯Punto De Encuentro摄影奖、城市干预艺术基金项目及玻利维亚Eduardo Abaroa国家艺术奖。他的作品已在南美各地展出,包括玻利维亚和厄瓜多尔文化中心。
      Warawar Wawa, which means 'son of the stars' in Aymara, draws on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince to represent modern Andean culture. Focusing on Bolivia, Reeve explores how different cultures have been controlled and weakened by foreign photography throughout history and how they have been rejected for their exoticism.
      Rivo has received numerous awards such as the EFTI Photography Fellowship in Madrid, the Punto De Encuentro Photography Prize in La Paz, the Urban Intervention Art Fund project and the Eduardo Abaroa National Art Prize in Bolivia. His work has been exhibited throughout South America, including in cultural centres in Bolivia and Ecuador.
