Photographer Zoren Gold and Japanese graphic designer/illustrator Minori Murakami (aka MI-ZO) began their creative collaboration in 2000. The idea behind this collaboration was to combine their expertise in different areas based on their mutual curiosity to discover the unexplored paths of creative imagery. ‘We hoped, together, to invent a new aesthetic in photographic imagery’ (MI-ZO in NY Arts Vol12 no 5/6). Reading through the two artists’ biographies, one realizes the power of innate artistic spirit and endowment. Although the duo are currently one of the most sought-after entities in the world of artistic photography, their partly self-taught talent as well as their continuous probing through the various forms of art, fashion and commerce, have resulted in their firmly establishing their personal creative signature in the world of photographic imagery.
