Mirko Mielke, born 1976, UDK Berlin graduate.
His photogram series "Trophäen der Nacht" (trophies of the night) aims to materialize the memory of nocturnal high spirits, symbolized by a typical souvenir of a
nightcrawling bar visitor.
Another artistic focus lies on the use of "concrete as photographic paper".
Handmade concrete plates and objects, coated with liquid lightsensitive photographic emulsion, are exposed with negative film in a darkroom or used as massive pinhole camera negatives.
