Heather Huey

Clic is pleased to present Heather Huey was Shot by Billy Kidd, a collaborative photographic project by New York-based artists Billy Kidd and Heather Huey. The opening will take place on Fashion’s Night Out, September 6th, 2012, from 6-8 pm.

Heather Huey was shot by Billy Kidd is a lyrical, sensually-charged photographic exploration of the complicity between the artist and model as both lovers and creative partners. Shot by photographer Billy Kidd, these abstract black and white prints feature milliner Heather Huey obscuring her kinetic, blurred nude form with her own futuristic body cage, braid and cocoon designs. The resultant body of work obliquely invokes the spirit of Man Ray and Lee Miller while also remaining a unique statement of a time when fashion and art are more symbiotic than ever.

Heather Huey’s couture headpieces have been pulled by such stylists as Karl Templer, Patti Wilson, Lori Goldstein, Nicola Formichetti, Camilla Nickerson, Ludivine Poiblanc, Giovanna Battaglia, Nicoletta Santoro, Robbie Spencer, David Vandewal, and Bill Mullen. Huey has collaborated with designers Thakoon, Simon Spurr, Siki Im, and Christian Siriano for New York Fashion Week. In 2010, Huey was afforded the opportunity to create her own pop-up installation at HL23 under the Highline Park in New York City.

Her designs have been photographed by Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Miles Aldridge and Tom Munro for Vogue Italia; Mert & Marcus for Interview; Mario Sorrenti and Jean-Baptiste Mondino for W magazine; Mariano Vivanco for Vogue Hommes Japan; Mario Testino for V magazine; Miguel Reveriego, Greg Kadel and Ben Hassett for Numéro France; Paolo Roversi and Solve Sundsbo for Vogue China; Ellen von Unwerth for VMan; and Terry Richardson for Purple Fashion.
