Erik Madigan Heck is an artist that happens to be a photographer mostly known in the fashion industry.
I don't do many episodes in english since it's a french podcast but when you come accross such a personnality, it would be silly not to record the conversation. It happens in a small Swiss town at the occasion of the International Photo Festival of Olten (IPFO).
Erik is American, 37, father of 3 and is already awarded with a infinity Award by the prestigious ICP (International Center of Photography), named by Forbes in the 30 under 30.
Beside being a worldwide known photographer, he also is the founding editor of art and fashion publication Nomenus Quarterly., He is often considered as the most innovative and exciting young artists in contemporary photography. Just simply as that.
When I looked into Erik's work, I was amazed because I've never seen anything like it. I was deeply touched and trouble. It was pretty clear that Erik was very sensitive and had a unique sense of creativity.
I love and practice photography myself and the first word that come to mind when looking at Erik's photos is painting. The second one is probably "romanticism".
In this episode, we are discussing how Erik want to push beauty in the world full of daily bad news ; how he thinks that utopia can only happens if you chose to look on the bright side.
It is a very insightful conversations, full of sensibility and vulnerability. Values that are so important to me and it feels good when it comes from a man perspective.
And as a cherry on the cake, he has a beautiful voice.
Hope you'll enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
