van der Moga Photography

In her personal work Mireille draws from her background in architecture and photo-journalism to investigate the built world and the dualistic, often destructive ways in which we occupy it. She uses photography as a means of posing questions about our choices with respect to how we organize ourselves and the built world and their resulting environmental, societal and interpersonal consequences.

Born in Romania in 1977, Mireille emigrated to New York City with her family in 1981. She earned a Masters in Architecture as well as Bachelors degrees in Photography and in Marketing. Her trajectory has served to enrich her practice in both architectural photography as well as the personal projects she pursues.

Mireille has been based in Berlin since 2014.
