Vera Comploj grew up in Selva Val Gardena, in the Italian Alps. She started her career as an Art and Fashion photographer after studying Visual Arts, Product Design and Photography in Bolzano and Milan, Italy. Vera has lived and worked in Milan, London, Paris and New York City – where she currently resides. 


Vogue US selected Vera Comploj as one of the 10 finalists of the New Exposure competition. Her series of photographs, Persona, was exhibited at Milk Gallery, in New York City. The same year, Vera’s work was also displayed at the Be Hospitable group show, part of the Liverpool Biennial, in Great Britain.

Her first solo show, In Between, was exhibited at Museion, Contemporary Art Museum, in Bolzano, Italy. Museion has acquired two of Vera's works in their permanent collection, and displayed at Collecting For Tommorow: New Works At Museion. Subsequently, In Between has been presented during the La Storia in Piazza festival at Palazzo Ducale and at the Contemporary Art Museum Villa Croce, in Genova. She also conceived, planned, and hosted the Alter Ego workshop for  teenagers, at Museion.

At present Vera collaborates as a photographer and filmmaker with luxury and fashion brands such as Elizabeth Arden, David Yurman, Longchamp, Vogue Germany, Rhié.
