Mirta Kokalj


Born in Slovenia (1983). She studied Pedagogy at the University of Arts in Ljubljana and started to explore photography while travelling. Her early black-and-white work, developed in the dark room, focused on reportage and architecture.
Her passion for photography and the desire to explore new things lead her to attend the Italian Institute of Photography (2008/2009) in Milan, where, interested in portrait photography, she launched into studio work and scene setting, introducing color into her work.
She now lives and works in Milan.
