Our “Inspiration Feeder” presents to you short interviews with interesting visual artists from around the globe. Today in focus: Tom Hegen.
How old are you?
I am 29 years old.
Where do you come from?
I was born in Augsburg, Germany and now live and work in Munich.
How long have you been doing photography?
I started with photography about 10 years ago.
How would you define your style?
I mainly do aerial photography projects and focus on the relationship between human and nature. My approach to aerial photography is very abstract and aesthetic. I use these two elements to draw awareness to environmental relevant issues.
How long do you think it took you to find your personal style of shooting?
I’ve been developing my aerial photo projects for the last five years. It’s an ongoing exploration, and I always work on new aerial projects. But for sure, my topics and style develop all the time and I still learn a lot from what I do.
What would you say is the thing that most inspires you? / What is your main source of inspiration?
I do get a lot of inspiration from reading, watching documentations and visiting art exhibitions. When I find a topic which is appealing to me, I start research on it and how to build a story around it.
