Surreal Planes

Erik Madigan Heck has captured the essence and brilliance of Mary Katrantzou‘s Fall 2011 collection in this stunning editorial for Nomenus Quarterly and A Magazine. Inspired by interior paintings of the late 19th century French painters Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, Heck blurs the lines between fashion photography and fine art, flattening the space between photography and illustration. The images are colorfully piercing, dramatic and oh so dreamy.

    these are amazing. I see what you mean about blurring the line between photography and illustration; the flattened effect is incredible!
