Balarama Heller has created a style of photography that unites the spontaneous with the thoughtfully composed, resulting in striking visual narratives that are both intimate and universal.  His studies in mythology, archetypes and the natural world inform his visual approach. 

Balarama has exhibited and published his fine art work internationally, while his commercial clients include Armani Exchange, Alexander Wang, Adidas Originals, Stella McCartney, Kenzo, Hublot, Nike, Levis and others. His most recent personal project, “Zero at the Bone” received 1st place for the 2017 Center Awards Editor’s Choice and runner-up for the 2017 Aperture Portfolio Prize.

Balarama splits his time between New York City and Zurich.
