A chance meeting with the film director Michelangelo Antonioni prompted a brief career change to an actress where she appeared in Antonioni’s film L’Eclisse (1962). This gave Mirella the opportunity to interact with the masters of the visual story-telling world, both cinematographers and actors working in Rome at the time. From them she learnt the art of camera angles and the use of lenses and techniques, which together with her Parisian experience, formed her signature style. Mirella preferred to be behind the lens rather than in-front of it, so she could remain anonymous in order to hone her photographic passion. This led to a series of telling portraits of actors, namely Gina Lollobrigida, Alain Delon and Monica Vitti, to name a few.
