In contemporary fashion photography, Erik Madigan Heck is something of an anomaly – a very successful anomaly who steers his own path. His work is elegant and unashamedly beautiful, exploring the intersections of fashion, painting and classical portraiture. Erik Madigan Heck: Old Future presents more than 100 photographs in a flowing, chromatic sequence. With essays by Susan Bright and Justine Picardie that look at Heck’s place within the realms of both art photography and fashion, and with an index to the photographs captioning the piece, model, designer, collection or publication in which each image appeared, this book is the essential introduction to a future master of fashion photography.

The plant kinfom inspired the names of the jewels in their colelection, plants which were part of the imaginary ancestral herbarium and reminiscent of the magic formulas of bewitching elixirs. In this collection, the imagination of Victoire de Castellane, freed from the shackles of convention, unleashed itself and proved its audacity. The first part of the book, designed to represent the extravagant nature of this collection as accurately as possible, is generously illustrated by Guide Mocafico’s photographs. The second part of also shows the various phases involved in unveiling this collection, starting from the building of a lotus-like structure in the virtual sphere on Second Life, until the actual presentation in the hall of Nymphéas de Monet at the musée de l’Orangerie.
