Here is a great selection of works from American photographer Erik Madigan Heck having compiled a retrospective of renowned designer Ann Demeulemeester, featured in Heck’s own Magazine, Nomenus Quarterly. This selection of his stunning black & white photographs is chosen from a wider portfolio that will be exhibited in collaboration with Ann Demeulemeester in Antwerp this year.
“Erik’s photographs capture the brooding quality of Ann’s menswear coupled with an unbridled youthful spirit. The bright, sunny images were shot in Mourning Park, New York, and break traditional barriers of fashion imagery, with liberal use of movement, unconventional framing and an inate human connection with the subjects. Styled by Emily Barnes, the models wear a mix of garments from across the Demeulemeester archive – with dramatic woolen capes and jackets, long white shirting, heavy leather boots and a myriad of hats, scarves and other subtly embellished accessories”.
Erik Madigan Heck will be shooting Super 8mm film to document Haider Ackermann’s Pitti Immagine event in Florence this week.
