Carla Cioffi is a documentary, editorial and fine art photographer. She was born in Caracas, Venezuela to a Sicilian father and an American mother.

As a photographer/photo archivist at NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Headquarters in Washington, DC, she documented everything from the end of the space shuttle program, congressional hearings on Capitol Hill, events at the White House, to extensive travel to Russia and Kazakhstan covering human spaceflight to and from the International Space Station. She holds the distinction of being the first American woman to photograph astronauts launching to the ISS from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and remains the only American woman to photograph the return to earth from the open door of a Russian military helicopter. Following NASA, she spent time living and working in Qatar as a freelance photographer.

Carla's editorial and reportage work has been distributed worldwide through news and photo agencies such as Financial Times, The Washington Post, NPR, The Guardian, National Geographic online, Getty Images, AP, Reuters. Her photographs on the Resist movement in the United States, entitled Nevertheless, We Persist, have been shared on social media by LensCulture, Photograph Magazine and The American Collective.
