The archival pigment print inserted in Tom Hegen’s special edition Salt Works shows one of the many sea salt production sites the photographer portrayed from the air and captured in their unique beauty as an abstract field. Tom Hegen photographs salt mines around the world, bringing them together in a study of colors and compositions reminiscent of abstract paintings. N°TSSIII02, San Francisco Bay, California, United States is one of those visual spectacles of beautiful geometries and stunning colors and also the cover subject of this impressively beautiful collection.

Tom Hegen (1991, Augsburg) is one of the most high-profile aerial photographers of our time. In his works, the Augsburg-based photographer documents the traces that man leaves on the earth’s surface. He has received several awards, most recently the Red Dot Design Award (2021) and the German Design Award (2019).

    Alluvion, an exhibition of the works of British artist and intellectual Mat Collishaw, curated by Danilo Eccher, will be open to the public at M77 Gallery, Via Mecenate 77, from June 7 to October 15, 2023. Alluvion represents a new landscape modelled by material deposited by floodwaters, just as digital media floods our daily life and changes the social co-ordinates through which we manage communication, making us dependent on a world increasingly mechanised and controlled by technology, an image we find in most of Collishaw’s work.
