Mimi Profile
Mimi Mollica
Photographer and Director of Offspring PhotoMeet
Mimi Mollica (Palermo, Italy 1975) is an award winning documentary photographer, editor and Associate Lecturer, BA Photography at London Metropolitan University. Mimi’s work examines themes relating to identity, culture, environment, migration, and the impacts of social and political change upon communities. Mollica’s long-term projects are characterised by an immersive engagement with the themes he focuses on and reveal a distinctive dedication that goes beyond the professional aspect of being a photographer. In his words, photography flirts with immediate truths and feeds itself of visual deceptions and is ultimately an intelligent discrimination of reality.
Mollica’s multi-awarded work has been widely featured in various prestigious publications ranging from The Guardian Weekend Magazine, Financial Times Weekend Magazine, The New York Times Lens, Newsweek Japan, Sunday Times Magazine, Internazionale, C Photo, Granta Magazine, among many others. Exhibition highlights include Somerset House, London 2013, The Rencontres D’Arles 2011, London Street Photography 2011, Contributed Gallery, Berlin 2010, Jerwood Space, London 2010, Milk Gallery, New York City and Third Floor Gallery, Cardiff 2010 and European Parliament, Strasbourg 2009 plus more.
