Erik Madigan Heck always tries to explore the boundaries of fashion as art and he became one of my favorites ever since his work for Mary Katranzou.
He's also a movie maker and is the founder editor of Nomenus Quarterly so I thought it was about time to blog about him & his work (Mary Katrantzou, Etro Homme, Rodarte, Kenzo, Haider Ackermann, Comme des Garcons, Alberta Ferretti, Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and The Row AMONGST OTHERS).
Vision is the strongest motive for creation, especially when art and fashion are about to become one.
Erik was being named the youngest photographer to shoot the Neiman Marcus Art of Fashion campaign and is has his newest project: the hosting of “Seven Film Works”, in an exhibition at The Avant/Garde Diaries in Soho. His films of the past three years, are a moving image project for which he collaborated with designers as Ann Demeulemeester, A.F. Vandevorst and the composers Avro Part and Marsen Jules. The films will be projected on the windows of Soho’s project space and will undoubtedly be a though-provoking procedure as to explore the boundaries of fashion as art.
Here is some of his work.
