David Heger Artist Bio:
David Heger is self-taught professional photographer who draw 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. ...Heger’s 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 his images, which would not be true had he not muted the colour. “I have learned that in every scene should be presented visually attractive and eye-catching story for the viewer. It is also world of brilliant and vivid colours sometimes hidden in twilight, often contrasting and mostly unrealistic. This unreality thing is what attracts me on photographing the most.”I think Heger has a strong attraction to the idea of narrative and storytelling, which is deeply prominent in his photography. He uses colour muting to create a more atmospheric feeling and in this particular picture, the exaggerated colours and clouds in the sky play a major part in idealistic mood. Muting colour can also create a feeling of nostalgia, and in this picture I personally think it does. Perhaps it also relates to that fact that there are two children perfectly composed in the centre of the frame, but there is a touching sense of sentimental nostalgia, which isn’t uncommon throughout muted photography....
