Born in Milan in 1976, Mirko Lamonaca lives and works in Bergamo.

Starting from painting, in 2008 Mirko Lamonaca elected the Staged Photography as an ideal way to represent his hand-made sets. Themes of his works were imaginary museums and towns and "Catàbasis", a research on the imagination of the underworld, a project that earned him the first prize at the Ferrara Riaperture Photography Festival in 2018, where it was exhibited. 

An open and eclectic interest brought Mirko Lamonaca to follow Lomography in 2016 during a workshop with Franco Fontana, who called Mirko to exhibit with him on several occasions (Milan, Brescia, Bergamo).

Mirko Lamonaca is currently working on long-term projects. His main focus is a research on the Italian suburban landscape taken on the road by an iPhone through the car windows. The first results of this research are the series “Luzzara", "Motorway A4. Crossing of the Province of Bergamo" and "Streets of Vezza d’Alba".

The recent project “Every Exits And Junctions On The Motorway A4”  is at the same time a tribute to Ed Ruscha's art and a post-photography experiment with the use of the technological resources provided by Google Earth.

Mirko Lamonaca has exhibited in Italy (Milan, Rome, Brescia, Ferrara, Genoa, Luzzara), Europe (Berlin, Brussels) and India (Hyderabad).

Mirko Lamonaca is member of the collective Gasthaus.
