Born in Milan in 1976, Mirko Lamonaca lives and works in Bergamo.
Starting from painting, in 2008 Mirko Lamonaca elected the Staged Photography as the ideal way to represent his hand-made sets. Themes of his works are 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’s works have been published in various magazines and exhibited in Italy (Milan, Rome, Brescia, Ferrara, Genoa), Europe (Berlin, Brussels) and India (Hyderabad).
