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.
