Cyril Helnwein
Artist | Professional | Photography
Film photographer at heart, although I often use digital cameras.

I've lived and worked in Austria, Germany, England, Scotland and the USA, eventually settling in Ireland in 1997.

I don't digitally manipulate my photographs, instead I use traditional photography tools such as lighting, movement and timing.

I am married to Irish actress/model Kojii and we have three children.

My exhibition "Beautiful Disasters" in Vienna is closing today.  It was quite successful and I look forward to starting a new photo-series for my next show.

Here is a cool little film about the exhibition, created by Konrad Weixelbraun.  Music by my brother, Ali Helnwein.   Check it out:

And here's a spot on ORF (Austrian National TV):

Castle Gurteen de la Poer in the Autumn
Castle Gurteen de la Poer, informally known as Castle Gurteen, on an Autumn afternoon. 
Tipperary's lovely Slievenamon (meaning "mountain of the women" in Irish) in the background.

Shot from a 40-foot cherry picker (with no HDR, filtering or other digital tricks!)

The Castle
was built in the 1860s in a neo-Gothic style by the Power family.  Home of the Helnwein family since 1998.

sigh, please Cyril, if/when you come to the USA, I will be at your beck and call, and divinely delighted to be a model for your collection of elite absurdities. Your work is a lime. Shit I meant sublime. :D (Big Grin)

a lemon, that is a performers curse, but strangely, I eat lemon on and in most foods I prepare crrrrreeepy (congrats on your Amsterdam show!) Even your rejects are causing an international stir. Don't thank me kindly, that is being polite - yuk polite - if avoiding honest. I'm the one, but here have an: Someone called an ambulance!
