Toronto based photographer Myron Zabol has had a career in commercial and fine art photography for over 30 years. He has been honored with numerous awards for his work, from the Toronto, Montreal and New York City Art Directors Clubs; the National Magazine Awards, The New York Film Festival and The Canadian Society of Magazine Photographers. The majority of Myron's work featured people and places as editorial content, conceptual fashion and advertising. In 1992 he was given a United Nations Environment Marketing Awareness Award for his participation with the Kenya Wildlife Fund.
Zabol is also the author of People Of The Dancing Sky, an innovative photographic book that shows the Iroquois people as they live today, through the filter of their resilient traditions. With his expertly captured images of faith-keepers, jingle dancers, chiefs, clan mothers, children, lacrosse champions, potters and teachers, Myron offers a unique view of the "People Of The Longhouse" and their time-honored way of expressing spirituality through dress and decoration.
Myron Zabol’s photography has been featured in both group and individual exhibitions. Selected works are in collections in Europe, Asia, USA and Canada. The center of his creativity is an ability to communicate through personal encounter, visual experience and spiritual conflict.
