Andrew Zuckerman is co-founder of The Slowdown and co-host of the Time Sensitive and At a Distance podcasts. A photographer, filmmaker, and creative director, his books include Creature (2007), Wisdom (2008), Bird (2009), Music (2010), Flower (2012), and Designed by Apple in California (2016).  Much of his work is concerned with the intersection of nature and technology. From 2015-2016, Zuckerman held a year-long curatorial residency at Chamber Gallery in New York, spanning four exhibitions of design and art that explored the human relationship to nature. He also worked with the California Academy of Sciences as the 2016 Osher Fellow, creating a body of work about the Twilight Zone, a relatively unexplored depth of the oceans. His 2014 installation for the windows of the Barneys New York flagship,commissioned by Dries Van Noten, was an invitation to the public to consider nature in new ways. Zuckerman’s precise and determined images create unique correlation points between viewer and subject. His works, often at life scale, have been exhibited and acquired by public

institutions and private collections. His books have been translated into numerous languages and published in 18 international editions.  With the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Zuckerman released Wisdom in 2008 as a book, a feature length documentary film, and a global traveling exhibition. More than 50 individuals from across disciplines participated in the project, including Nelson Mandela, Andrew Wyeth, Jane Goodall, and Madeleine Albright. For the Music film and book, he expanded the series to musicians including Iggy Pop, Ornette Coleman, Yoko Ono, and Herbie Hancock. Zuckerman’s narrative film work includes directing High Falls, which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was awarded Best Short Film at the Woodstock Film Festival the same year, and a feature documentary on the musician Bill Withers, Still Bill, which premiered at the 2009 SXSW film festival.  Zuckerman has collaborated extensively with many brands, including Google, Gap, and BMW. From 2008-2017, he served as executive creative director of Creature Pictures, a creative agency he founded, which worked on numerous media projects for Apple. Designed by Apple in California, a book released in 2016, was the result of a multi-year commission exploring 20 years of Apple design. His work has been recognized by the D&AD with a Yellow Pencil and been included in Communication Arts, Graphis, and The Art Directors Club.  Zuckerman has also created projects for One, the ACLU, Red, and United Way. He currently serves on the board of the Children’s Museum of Arts. He lives in New York City with his wife and three children.
