Mónica de Miranda is an artist and researcher. Born in Oporto, in 1976 of Angolan parents, she actually describes herself as an artist working in the diaspora. She uses photography, mixed media and video, with which she tackles issues of geography and identity, expressing silent visions of personal history and exploring the poetics of belonging. A graduate in Visual Arts from the Faculty of Arts at Camberwell, she completed her studies with a Master of Arts and Education from the London Institute of Education and a Doctorate in Visual Arts from the University of Middlesex. In 2016 she was nominated for the Novo Banco Photography Prize and exhibited at the Museu Coleção Berado in Lisbon as a finalist. Miranda was also nominated for the Prix Pictet Photography Prize that same year. Her work is present in public collections such as the Fundação Calouste Gulbekian, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Chiado and the Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa.
