Zelig Fok

Zelig Fok will join the Knowlton School as the 2021–22 Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellow beginning autumn 2021.

Fok is an architectural designer, photographer, and educator. He was awarded teaching fellowships at Yale and was the recipient of the David M. Schwarz Research Travel Fellowship in 2019. He brings professional experience as a project manager in production and exhibition design at Supermatic Studio and continues to work as an architectural photographer.

Fok’s research focuses on the tenuous relationship between the built environment and its photographic representations. His work investigates the relevance of photography within architecture’s disciplinary boundaries and architectural representation’s broader implications within contemporary image culture.

Fok holds a Master of Architecture from Yale University, a Bachelor of Fine Art in Architecture from Savannah College of Art & Design, and Associate Diplomas from The Royal Conservatory of Canada in Music Pedagogy and Trinity College London in Speech and Drama.
