THROUGH A YOUNGER LENS: The Art of Fashion, Neiman Marcus’ campaign for 20 years, romances cutting-edge fashion with provocative photography. And by selecting 28-year-old Erik Madigan Heck as the photographer for the fall campaign, the tradition is upheld.

“We wanted to pair up this season’s exquisite fashions with a true creative visionary,” said Eddie Nunns, vice president, Neiman Marcus brand creative. “Erik Madigan Heck’s work blurs the lines between photography and art, and through his illustrative approach he created stunning images that differentiate this campaign from any other.”
