Justin Guariglia is current Contributing Editor to National Geographic Traveler Magazine, and a regular contributor to Smithsonian magazine. He was nominated for the International Center of Photography’s Young Photographer Infinity Award, received an Eddie Adams Workshop award, and was named by Photo District News as one of the top “30 Young Photographers under 30.” In 2003, Guariglia met Zoe Chen, then a designer working for Issey Miyake in Tokyo, Japan. Chen's designs were mostly inspired by intricate geometries and complex knit patterns. Upon meeting, the two began collaborating on projects together. Their first major project, Shaolin: Temple of Zen is being presented as a book and large internationally touring exhibition by the Aperture Foundation in New York. It is also the subject of a two-year Nokia print and television advertising campaign.
