Cyril Helnwein has been taking photos since he was 10 years old, having started out with a Yashica half-frame camera that allowed 2 photos per film frame.

Since then his work has been shown at various galleries worldwide and featured in a wide range of online and print publications.

He has lived and worked in Austria, Germany, England, Scotland and the USA, eventually settling in Ireland in 1997.

His implausible photographs are famously free from digital manipulation – Helnwein prefers to use traditional photography tools such as lighting, movement and timing.

He is married to Irish actress/model Kojii and together they have three children.

Collectors of his works include:
Marilyn Manson
Lisa Marie Presley
Demi Moore
Brandon Boyd
Ashton Kutcher
Jason Lee
Danny Masterson
Laura Prepon
Macaulay Culkin
Chris Masterson
Cobi Jones
Jenna Elfman
Michael Peña

His most recent series is titled, “Beautiful Disasters” can currently be seen on display in Vienna.  For more information on Beautiful Disasters visit his Site HERE
