Tom Hegen provides with his aerial photographs an overview of places where the relationship between humans and nature becomes visible. Often choosing dramatic and abstract perspectives, he creates a bigger picture of our relationship with planet Earth.
My name is Tom Hegen, I work as a Photographer and Designer in Munich, Germany. I focus on aerial photography projects that show impact of human presence on earth.
As a photographer I am interested in the relationship between man and nature. In my aerial photography I focus on landscapes that have been heavily transformed by human intervention. I am trying to sensitize the viewer for those subjects by taking a look on the extraordinary forces impacting our environment.
