Ciel Veira was born in New York City in 1993. During his youth, he moved between America, Brazil and France, eventually graduating from New York University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Music.
While working as a Translator and Coordinator at a Japanese Film Production company, Veira was introduced to photography in order to location scout for commercials. After embarking on a series of personal projects, he decided to pursue photography full time in 2019.
His work is comprised of Long Exposure Landscapes, Portraits, Wildlife and Abstract Still Life. Many of his photos explore themes of fear and the macabre, taking inspiration not only from masters such as Sebastião Salgado and Roger Ballen but also from the writings of Antonin Artaud and Mikhail Bulgakov.
