Inspired by the late interior paintings of the 19th century French painters Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, Heck has pushed his dream-like aesthetic into new territory, blurring the lines between fashion photography and fine art. Combining Katrantzou’s dazzling architectural demi-couture with (equally decadent) customized sets, Erik achieves a piercing chromatic effect.

By now you should know our love for Mary Katrantzou since her very first show when she was still at St Martins to her latest F/W 2011 collection. While its pretty rare to see Mary pieces outside the runways (she has not shot a lookbook yet), when you see an editorial of her collection, you are instantly struck. That’s why this series by NY-based photographer Erik Madigan Heck for Nomenus Quarterly (the world’s most expensive magazine) is pretty amazing!
Reflecting upon the images, Heck stated “It signifies a different direction in my own work, where I am trying to flatten the space between photography and illustration, by eliminating photographic elements and painting on different surfaces and colors in post-production, attempting to move closer towards painting itself, in process and form.”
