Mishka is the author of the photobooks No Man's Land, looking at isolated women occupying the margins of southern European environments, and Less Américains, a 'remake' of Robert Frank’s classic photobook, The Americans. He is known for appropriating technologies like Google Earth and Street View in his work.

In 2014, Mishka's Beef & Oil series was shortlisted for the Prix Pictet. In 2013 he was awarded the ICP Infinity Award for Art and shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. A recipient of the 2011 Kleine Hans award, his works are held in the Tate Collection, Victoria & Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library, the Centre Pompidou, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Portland Museum of Art, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.

About the Janet Hall Memorial Lecture: London Independent Photography organises an annual lecture with a renowned photographer working on independent projects. The lecture takes place each year in memory of co-founder member Janet Hall who passed away in 2005. She was our energetic, original program organiser and a driving force in establishing London Independent Photography in 1987. The sale of her photographic equipment, bestowed to the group, made the original Janet Hall lecture possible. Previous speakers have included Martin Parr, Brian Griffin, Simon Norfolk, Roger Ballen and Mark Power.

A note from Mishka after his lecture: "Just wanted to write to thank you all for putting on such a great night yesterday. The turnout was fantastic and the audience was one of the most engaged I've come across. I was delighted with the way the evening went. Thanks again for the invitation."
