  • About the work

Mikelle Standbridge worked 20 years in the darkroom printing with different themes, always interrupted by a change of house/city/country/language, and after that the “Photo-Bodies” series finally found its form and proper mix of experiment, formal value, and concept.


About the Artist

1965 Los Angeles, United States

Mikelle grew up in a mountain village in Southern California, USA, got a degree in Art – with an emphasis in photography – from San Francisco State University.  During her studies, she integrated 3 years in France to study French, darkroom printing, and art history. She was then awarded a scholarship to get her Masters from the Univ. of Chicago.  While teaching photography in Chicago at Columbia College after getting her M.F.A., she met her Italian to be husband and moved to Milan in 2000. She is now represented by the Milan gallery Gli Eroici Furori – Contemporary Art.

The teaching environment was radically different in the three institutions where she studied photography: S. F. S.U. was very interdisciplinary and experimental; the Univ. of Paris was extremely formal; the Univ. of Chicago was conceptual. After 20 years of darkroom printing and years of working with different themes, always interrupted by a change of house/city/country/language, the “Photo-Bodies” series finally found its form and proper mix of experiment, formal value, and concept.

She is also currently working on restoring a 18th C. villa in northern Italy to make an artists retreat.
