In this survey of work from the past 15 years, Heilner will share his obsession with the collision, entanglement, and ultimate integration of human infrastructure with the natural landscape. While his work spans many media and perspectives, it is his aerial photographs that best document the physical manifestations of human culture. With these images, Heilner explores the front lines of some of the most substantial environmental impacts occurring today, including resource extraction, water usage, and rural and suburban development.
Far from a polemic call to return to any sort of lost Eden, this body of work seeks to understand the realities of our societal needs and choices. A case is being made here for clear-eyed wonder and honest understanding of all that we build and produce; and that good environmental and political decisions will be made if all information is on the table. Through their formal beauty and unaffected abstraction, these photographs serve as an elegant and insightful investigation of our Anthropocene age.
