Mirella Ricciardi was born in colonial Kenya, grew up amongst the beauty of Africa and has always identified herself as an African photographer. She is most well known for her book Vanishing Africa.
Mirella´s work was printed as black and white platinum prints and exhibited in 2008 at Michael Hoppen Gallery in London. Factum Arte printed her work in colour on our multi-layered flatbed pigment printer; the aim being to produce an edition of prints which demonstrate her ability to capture both the intensity and sensitivity of the colours of the African landscape.
