German landscape photographer Tom Hegen goes out of his way to capture unique settings from unseen angles. Since 2015, he has dedicated his artistic endeavours to aerial photography projects.
His aerial photography shines a light on the stunning wonders of mother earth, as well as landscapes that have been heavily transformed by human intervention. Taking off in aeroplanes, hot air balloons, and helicopters, Hegen can portray our civilization and pay tribute to our planet simultaneously from his bird’s eye view.
Often choosing to document abstract perspectives, Hegen reads landscapes based on their significance within the global human impact on planet earth. His first illustrated book "Habitat" was published in 2018. Hegen's works have received distinguished creative awards, such as the Red Dot Design Award, the German Design Award, and the International Photography Award.
Solo exhibitions include Leica Gallery, Germany, 2021, Anthropocene, South Korea, 2021, Human Habitat, Gallerie di Piedicastello, Italy, 2021, Printspace Gallery, UK, 2018.
