Roberto Mirulla was born in Rome in 1972 to an Italian father from Tripoli, Libya, and an English mother.
He became passionate about photography as a teenager and participated in photography competitions and workshops. His main teachers were reporter Mario De Biasi and Franco Fontana. Among his favorite photographers are Gabriele Basilico, Luigi Ghirri and the historical photographers of the Magnum agency. He holds a diploma in photography from Istituto Cine Tv Rossellini and a degree in architecture from Roma Tre. To his personal photographic research, he accompanies a teaching activity at various associations. His work has always investigated the landscape of urban and suburban areas in their transformations, researching the most subtle aspects of composition, light and space. His vision is both emotional and contemplative. The landscape very often prevails over the human presence, giving a metaphysical dimension to the images. He has been exhibiting his work at art galleries and institutional spaces since 2000. He is part of the group of photographers "Quelli di Franco Fontana," with whom he has exhibited in various national venues including the Casa dell'Architettura and Palazzo Merulana in Rome, Spazio Tadini in Milan, and Palazzetto dell'Arte in Foggia. Since 2022 he has been a member of a Collective of artists in the Roman neighborhood of Monteverde, with whom he develops art projects in Rome.
He lives and works in Rome.
