São Paulo - State of São Paulo, Brazil
Cris Veit is a Documental Photographer and Independent Photo Editor living in Brazil.
From 2001 to 2013, she worked as Art Director and Photo Editor at the Brazilian edition of National Geographic Magazine. During her years in the iconic magazine, Cris never imagined herself as a photographer, until in 2016 she produced her first essay “The Battle for Mosul – Image Makers”. In it, Cris takes advantage of her experience as a photo editor to discuss possible approaches to the photographic coverage of a conflict. The work was published on National Geographic Brazil and on Roads and Kingdoms and P3 websites.
In the ongoing project “Close enough,” Cris uses photography as a playful tool to interact with her three nephews – at the same time she is adding this language to their expressive vocabulary, she learns to see in a state of newness, which is how a child sees the world.
Cris also acts as independent Photo Editor and consultant for documental projects. She is co-curator of Foto_Invasão, a photo festival with editions in 2016 and 2018 in São Paulo.
