Sotheby’s Diamonds’ 'Inspiration and Innovation' – the precious 'Ricci Collection' photographed by Erik Madigan Heck. Discover his archive on TRUNK ARCHIVE and meet the renowned agency at UPDATE17 in Berlin

Sotheby’s Diamonds’ The Ricci Exhibition, presents the glamorous works of ERIK MADIGAN HECK and is now on display at Sotheby’s on Bond Street. Further works by the photographer are available from GoSee member TRUNK ARCHIVE. And meet TRUNK ARCHIVE this year once again at UPDATE17 on 6 October in Berlin.

“This summer, Sotheby’s is celebrating the Art of the Season – the very best in quintessentially British events that pepper the social calendar throughout the summer – and the new Sotheby’s Diamonds salon is the perfect place to choose jewels for the season, assisted by a dedicated team offering a bespoke service for any occasion or event,” says the traditional London auction house.

“Sotheby’s Diamonds celebrated the opening of the new London Salon and its contemporary collection of modern diamond masterpieces by commissioning a set of photographs by renowned photographer, Erik Madigan Heck. Approaching photography with the same eye as high art, Heck captures the essence of the great masters by using his camera as a paint brush – celebrating the jewels and the art that inspired them.”

“I always wanted to be a painter; I suppose most photographers secretly do,” says Erik Madigan Heck. “My mother was a painter. We painted together when I was a child, and she took me to the museum almost every week to look at paintings,” ERIK MADIGAN HECK tells us, who photographs for clients including The New York Times magazine, Vanity Fair, TIME, The New Yorker and Harper’s Bazaar UK. In 2013, he was one of the youngest photographers to receive the ICP Infinity Award, and at the beginning of the year, he published his monograph with powerful imagery at Thames & Hudson and Abrams Books titled Old Future, which presents works from the past ten years. Further information on the cooperation is available via the British Journal of Photography.

Trunk Archive : announces collaboration with the Ian Schrager Company for unique photography collection in newly opened London Edition Hotel

Trunk Archive is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Ian Schrager Company for the curation and licensing of a photographic collection consisting of 185 still life, landscape, floral and conceptual photographs. The installation is now on permanent view at the newly opened London Edition Hotel.

All wall space in the Berners Tavern dining room has been covered with an eclectic mix of images by over 60 Trunk Archive photographers. The photographs are elaborately displayed in gilt frames to showcase the tableaux of jewel-toned still lifes and sweeping pastoral landscapes. Artists include Simon Watson, Tessa Traeger, Don Freeman, Coppi Barbieri and Toby McFarlan Pond, amongst many others.

The Berners Tavern project is "an example of how gorgeous photography can help to create what is being described as 'one of the most visually stunning dining rooms in London now.' We are hearing only amazing feedback, and are extremely proud of the collaboration", says Matthew Moneypenny, CEO of Trunk Archive.

Kirstin Bailey, EVP of Interior Design at the Ian Schrager Company says "Our mission was to source imagery that would complement the existing architecture. This was challenging as the space consisted of triple height ceilings and intricate plasterwork. We wanted to recreate the experience of dining in a stately home and to evoke the feeling of a personal art collection. Trunk Archive rose to the occasion in a remarkable way."

The London Edition Hotel is the latest property developed through Marriott's partnership with Ian Schrager. Trunk Archive tells GoSee, “the brand blends groundbreaking innovation, great design, outstanding dining and entertainment together with impeccable modern service”.
