Join us for a book signing of Erik Madigan Heck: Old Future (Abrams Books, April 2017). The first major monograph on Heck, the book presents more than 100 photographs that demonstrate his range and vivid use of color, and his ability to produce evocative and seductive images that are simultaneously timeless and futuristic. With essays by Susan Bright and Justine Picardie that look at Heck’s place within the realms of both art photography and fashion, this book is the essential introduction to a future master of fashion photography.
Born in 1983 in Minnesota, Erik Madigan Heck began photographing at the age of fourteen when his mother, who is a painter, gave him a camera. He still uses that same lens today as a regular contributor to the New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, Time, W, New York magazine, and the New Yorker, among others. He has collaborated with fashion designers including Ann Demeulemeester, Haider Ackermann, Kenzo, and Giambattista Valli. Heck received a gold medal from the Art Directors Club in 2015 and received the 2013 ICP Infinity Award for Applied/Fashion/Advertising Photography.
