Last chance to see a brilliant tribute to photography and painting, Sotheby’s presents a curated selection of works by Erik Madigan Heck in a stunning selling exhibition.  Approaching photography with the same eye as high art, Heck’s works capture the essence of painting through the lens of his camera.  His work is elegant and unashamedly beautiful, exploring the intersections of fashion, painting, and classical portraiture.  Working with natural light and combining in-camera effects with digital postproduction, he produces evocative and seductive images that are simultaneously timeless and futuristic. The exhibition is on until 19th May 2017 but if you miss out, try to catch the photographer in conversation, ‘Picturing Balenciaga’ at the Victoria and Albert museum or check out his new anthology, Old Future.
