Comme des Garcons & Erik Madigan Heck

27-year-old photographer and filmmaker Erik Madigan Heck has paved a golden pathway for himself over the past five years, weaving a cohesive portfolio of collaborative work through the fashion and art worlds of New York and Paris. Heck established himself by founding the online art culture magazine Nomenus Quarterly, which has featured the work of Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, and Rodarte, and artists including Christian Boltanski, Kiki Smith, and Lawrence Weiner.

Heck's work has a dreamlike quality marked by surrealist undertones, an appreciation for fine art conventions, and an exploration of various photographic mediums (both modern and obsolete). The Minnesota-born photographer has just self-published his first art book, featuring his fashion photography, landscapes, and portraits entitled January to August, 2011. It launches Sept. 1 at New York's Ion Studios, and will hit shelves internationally in the upcoming weeks.

How and when did you start taking photographs?

ERIK MADIGAN HECK: I began photographing around 14; my mother gave me a camera, it's actually the one I still use for creating most of my work. My career has evolved from literally figuring out how to formally structure a photograph, to going through graduate school and trying to formally structure my thoughts. A sort of gradual learning, then unlearning.
