Erik Madigan Heck: Old Future

30 November – 7 December

Echoing with art historical references yet ultra contemporary, often saturated with color and simultaneously dreamlike, the images created by Minnesota-born, 33-year-old Erik Madigan Heck are both timeless and futuristic and always aim for maximum beauty. It is no wonder that Sotheby’s Diamonds chose the photographer to shoot its latest campaign – it is one step in an impressive career in which Heck has photographed for publications ranging from W and Harper’s Bazaar to The New York Times Magazine, while collaborating with such fashion houses as Valentino and Comme des Garçons, and brands such as BMW and Levi’s. Sotheby’s caught up with him to discuss his process, his selling exhibition at Sotheby’s New York and his work with Sotheby’s Diamonds. Read the full feature here.
