Diana Gomez has photographed everyone from Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Selena Gomez, to Courtney Love, Jade Jager and Chelsea Tyler. It’s one thing to ogle over her pictures online, but it’s an entirely new experience to see her celebrity portraits in person.
That’s why it’s so exciting that the Pikes Hotel in Ibiza is opening its doors for the first time ever with the launch of a Diana Gomez exhibition, FREE WOMEN. The iconic photographic installations will be life-size and scattered around the hotel grounds, playing off Diana’s colourful and passionate world. As a feminist-driven display, the show is meant to celebrate the freedom that comes with being comfortable in your own skin. The photos represent key moments in Diana’s life, and are displayed in collaboration with the look of the hotel.
Dawn Hindle, the Creative Director of Pikes, said of the exhibit, “I am so excited to be collaborating with Diana on this amazing exhibition at Pikes. Ibiza has a community of strong creative women and ‘Free Women’ represents this perfectly. Pikes is more than just a hotel, it’s become a cultural hub and is the perfect setting to exhibit Diana’s work.”
Diana was born and raised in Venezuela, but developed her career here in London. Her photography revolves around all that is bright and colourful, allowing an optimistic beauty to shine through. Her resume is lengthy, with editorial clients like Harpers Bazaar and advertising clients like Nike. You can learn more about Diana here.
The Pikes Hotel in Ibiza was an ideal place for showcasing Diana’s photography because of its renowned pool and fairytale gardens. It’s listed in the Sunday Times Travel as one of the top 100 hotels in the world, and has won ‘Best Boutique Hotel’ in Ibiza for the past three years. Guests from all over will travel to the island for the exhibition, including VIP clients, celebs, editors and models. Some portraits will be available for purchase.
The Pikes Hotel Diana Gomez exhibition of celebrity portraits will open in Ibiza on the 24th August.
