About Tom Hegen

My name is Tom Hegen, I work as a Photographer and Designer in Munich, Germany. I focus on aerial photography projects that show the 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 at the extraordinary forces impacting our environment.
