BIOGRAPHY

Mirko Sperlonga is a photographer and artist born in 1995 in Terracina. Currently based in Rome, he has developed an unusual and personal bond with photography from a young age, showing great curiosity and sensitivity. A lover of nature and all that it encompasses, Mirko communicates, blends, and creates through his images. Prior to fully dedicating himself to photography, Mirko studied psychology of human science, deepening his understanding of human behavior and emotions. He later obtained a master’s degree in lighting design and another in advanced digital photography, acquiring technical and artistic skills. In 2023, Mirko graduated from Isfci in Rome in fashion photography, thus combining his passion for the human figure with his ability to create visually impactful images. In his work, Mirko employs a narrative documentary approach that blends with the language of contemporary fashion. This allows him to create images that challenge conventional photography canons, revolutionizing them to emphasize his ability to combine different styles and content without losing connection with the subject. His photographs are characterized by a strong conceptual minimalism that captures the viewer’s attention without hesitation. Mirko Sperlonga is an artist who can create images that communicate emotions and stories using a unique and distinctive style.
