“Life is too short to be ignorant about different cultures, far away lands, and majestic places. There is beauty in everything and the power of perception is the key tool needed to translate certain moments into a universal language, a medium which educates and teaches others from what I have been exposed to or simply what I have perceived through my lens, the window to my world.” Traveling the world before he could even remember becoming fascinated and intrigued by the world that surrounds him, Zola has begun a life long journey that will continue to take him to exotic locations and experiencing different cultures.
Heavily influenced by his upbringing, born in Hong Kong, raised on the tropical Mirconesian island of Guam, spending summers in Alaska, and traveling extensively through a multitude of countries and continents: Indonesia, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Macau, the Philipine Islands, Fiji, Australia, Mexico, the West Indies, Canada, Europe, and the United States of America, has created his own unique view of the world. Early travels has spawn Zola’s photographic education to receiving a BA in Art at the University of San Diego and attending Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara.
