Zach Gold began his professional photography career soon after graduationg with honors from Parsons School of Design in 1995. In 1997, he was selected by the New York Art Directors Club as one of the top 100 artists in New York City under 35. He was one of the first artists in the world to successfully blend the subtle complexities of both camera and computer to produce photorealistic digital art. Articles about his groundbreaking digital illustrations have been featured in French Photo, Rojo, Photo District News, Creativity, AdWeek, Bild (Sweden), Profifoto (Germany) and he was the youngest artist to be included in Graphis.
Introducing him as “one of the leaders in creative image making,” Peter Jennings presented Zach with the International Center of Photography’s “Young Photographer of the Year” award in 2000. Other award recipients that evening included Helmut Newton and Robert
Frank. Zach’s work was exhibited during New York’s annual fashion shows in the fall of 2001, where he was named “one of the ten photographers changing photography.” Zach has also recently co-created The Playground with Julie Ragolia. The Playground will be
