The influence of art, notably painting, is a thread that runs through the history of fashion photography. From Edward Steichen, Irving Penn, and Horst P. Horst to Guy Bourdin and Sarah Moon, the great fashion photographers have often positioned their work as art. Erik Madigan Heck’s work explores this intersection of fashion, painting, and classical portraiture. Erik Madigan Heck: Old Future presents more than 100 photographs in a flowing, chromatic sequence. The photographs featured—published in the New York Times Magazine, New York, Harper’s Bazaar UK, Porter, and more—show 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.
