Eric Muzzy started his working life early and peripatetically in a series of positions including factory worker, cabinet maker, house builder, deckhand, photographer and cameraman before focusing on documentary filmmaking at Temple University. He worked in the commercial film industry and on independent films, and much later, with a degree in Library Science as a developer at the American Museum of Natural History and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
He often collaborates with two New York artists, Zoe Beloff and performer, composer and singer Shelley Hirsch. He has done theatrical lighting and multimedia visuals with Shelley throughout the US and Europe. Eric is the cinematographer on all of Zoe's films and media installations since "Shadow Land or Light from the Other Side" in 2000.
In his most recent project he was co-creator with Zoe on @ Work presented at the Slought Foundation in Philadelphia, July 2022, and The Center for the Humanities, James Gallery, New York, August 2022.
