Heikō, the Japanese word for equilibrium, is a photography book that explores the importance and imprint of the body on the suburban landscape. Published in 2023, Heikō acts as the culmination of Jack’s studies at the University of California, San Diego, and was created with the expertise of Lorena Mostajo. The project draws inspiration from Todd Hido’s series of night photography projects as well as Wolfgang Tillman’s use of micro/macro within his work. The book is 40 pages, full color, with a foil stamp cover designed by Alyssa Lefevre.

Jack Furgerson (b. 2001) is a multi-genre photo-based artist born and raised in Encinitas, California. He earned his BA in Media at The University of California, San Diego, AA Studio Art, and AA Creative and Applied Arts at MiraCosta Community College. Jack has explored themes of place, context, and history in his art practice. In contrast, he focuses on documentary and action sports commercially.

Jack’s work has been published internationally, with most recent features with Der Greif in Germany and Luna Collective’s “VIVID” in the United States. He has also guest lectured at UCSD upon graduation facilitated by Paul Mpagi Sepuya.
