Born and raised in Bristol, Connecticut, Jeffrey Heyne wanted to become either a scientist or an artist; his father wanted him to learn a trade. Instead he became an architect, but he's always had a camera.
From the beginning Heyne has been intrigued with accidental or unconscious beauty and much of his early work focused on portraying industrial architecture in a heroic light. He finds there to be a truthful honesty demonstrated by engineers designing to resolve a physical requirement. Lately he has been looking at the flip side by reevaluating deliberate and conscious design by architects and artists who strive to imbue meaning but seem to miss the mark. He is exploring this disconnect.
