"Zabol's work represents the exploration of time. He meticulously creates scenes, space, lighting, and people as a tableau. He weaves textures and uses light, colour, costumes and people to create a rich tapestry of life, juxtaposed against time. His highly curated objects, fashion, settings and even his recording a people are his testament to the perception of his own time here. The photographs represent time as a rich, full cycle of life, place, energy, dignity and decay."
– Ann Hollingworth
Myron Zabol was born in a small prairie town in Saskatchewan. He still remembers the scents of the prairie grass, the sight and sounds of grasshoppers, gophers, crows, tumbleweeds, and the endless wind. Perhaps the start of his interest in photography was the shapeshifter that lurked on the prairie’s vivid landscape.
Attracted by the city’s burgeoning arts and music scenes, Zabol opened his first studio in Toronto in the early 70, on the top floor of the fabled Art Metropole building. He quickly gained a reputation for his creative and individualistic style in the city’s editorial, fashion and advertising industries.
Myron’s work has received recognition from the Toronto, Montreal, and New York Art Directors Club Awards, as well as the National Magazine Awards. In 1992 he received a United Nations Marketing Award for his work with the Kenya Wildlife Fund.
He resides on the island of Notre-Dame-de-L'ile-Perrot in Quebec, where he keeps his studio. His work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States, internationally, and in numerous private and corporate collections.
