From Cuban descent, Sergio Veranes grows up between Madrid and Paris. His adventure with photography starts at nine with a Kodak Instamatic. Photography becomes his childhood hobby and he self-teaches himself everything from the camera to printing. He studies at Brown University and takes photography courses at Rhode Island School of Design.
He starts his photographic career in Paris in 1990, then moves to New York, shooting fashion, international advertising campaigns and portraits of celebrities. He contributes to Glamour USA, GQ Italia, Esquire UK, Condé Nast Traveler UK, Grazia Italia.
In time, insisting on a purist and minimalist approach, he distances himself from artifice, concentrating on soul, personality, grace and beauty. Searching for human depth, he gears his work towards the production of authentic, incisive portraits. He also turns his attention to the expression of bodies in movement, working with dancers and athletes. He masters light and contrast with a dedicated sculpting touch, producing images of dramatic depth and beauty.
His artistic photography is represented in galleries worldwide, exhibited in museums, among them Les Jardins du Palais Royal in Paris (2009) and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Panamá (2011), and sold in auction houses such as Drouot in Paris.
He lives between New York and Montreal with his wife and 4 children.
