Originally from Excelsior, Minnesota, Erik Madigan Heck (*1983) is one of the youngest and most promising American fashion photographers of the contemporary art scene. In his relatively short career the artist developed a personal way of looking at fashion, as Nathalie Herschdorfer underlines in her essay 'Minimal and pure: Erik Madigan Heck fashion photographs.' His work is characterised by a clear and distinctive treatment of colours and patterns, which makes it unequivocal.
'Heck's photographs push the concept to new limits, creating imagery that goes beyond traditional fashion photography. Meticulously constructed and enhanced with bright colours, blurring the line between the clothes and the background, his images play with this idea of 'future' silhouettes.' — Nathalie Herschdorfer
In 2017 Heck published his first monograph with Thames & Hudson and Abrams Books titled Old Future. In his 'Old Future' series Madigan Heck explores the intersection of photography and painting as he borrows from and bends the genres of fashion photography, landscape painting and portraiture.
Madigan Heck is a regular contributor to The New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, TIME, The New Yorker, and Harper's Bazaar UK. His advertising clients include Sotheby's, Clinique, Nike, Neiman Marcus, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, The New York City Ballet, The GAP, VH1, Gentle Monster, amongst others. In 2013 he became one of the youngest photographers to receive the prestigious ICP Infinity Award, and in 2015 was awarded with the Art Directors Club's Gold Medal and the AI-IP American Photography award for his Old Masters Portfolio, published by The New York Times Magazine.
Erik Madigan Heck is based in Connecticut and New York City.
