David Heger, self-taught photographer is passionate about the Conceptual Fine Art Photography. He draws his visions from his experience in puppet animation studio where he act as second camera man under supervision of Miloslav Spala, the famous Jan Svankmajer's cameraman. His work is influenced by the beauty of Czech landscape and works of František Drtikol and Jan Saudek. He is taking pictures using analogue camera Zenza Bronica SQA (6x6 cm) and black-and-white film Ilford FP4+. Than he process the picture in a digital format after having scanned. Recently he use own handmade digital camera for his conceptual photo.
Every conceptual photo on this website is available for purchase as a fine art print (giclee printing), printed on archival quality paper - colour guaranteed to more than 50 years.
… His work is very cloudy in tone lacking vibrancy, but this is what makes it so remarkable. Heger manages to create a warm feel of nostalgia in this image, which would not be true had he not muted the color. I think Heger has a strong attraction to the idea of narrative and storytelling, which is deeply prominent in his photography. He uses color muting to create a more atmospheric feeling and exaggerated colors and clouds in the sky play a major part in idealistic mood. Heger’s work is my favorite out of all of the photographers I’ve studied for this essay. I really appreciate the subtlety of his pictures, because although often simple, they are incredibly in depth, and powerful for the viewer. Because of this he manages to incorporate muted color fabulously within his style of photography, as it creates mood, feeling and texture almost within his photographs.
