Miles Aldridge: Vanitas: One Black & White and Twenty Four Colour Photographs
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS • Galerie Alex Daniels - Reflex Amsterdam • 8 March - 10 May 2014
British fashion photographer Miles Aldridge's new solo show consists of 24 large scale colour photogrpahs and one black&white photograph. Miles Aldridge (born 1964), born in London, studied at Central St. Martins, became a director of music videos, and then a fashion photographer in the 1990s. His work mixes autobiographical themes with influences as wide ranging as the fashion photographer Richard Avedon, film directors like Hitchcock, Lynch and Fellini and his father Alan Aldridge, the legendary art director, who created seminal artworks for The Beatles.
Miles Aldridge's photographs are mostly known for the beautiful, glamorous women who seem to be living in perfect worlds. But when you look closer, their worlds aren’t as perfect as they seem. It’s a dream that could just as easily turn into a nightmare.
A new book, One Black&White And Nineteen Colour Photographs By Miles Aldridge, will be published by Reflex Editions Amsterdam and launched at the opening. The artist will be present for book signing.

Félix Vallotton. Fire beneath the ice
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS • Van Gogh Museum • 14 February - 1 June 2014
During the 1890s the Franco-Swiss artist Félix Vallotton (1865-1925) belonged to the group of artists known as Les Nabis (the prophets). This circle of young, avant-garde artists embarked on a new path whose highly decorative style of art was influenced by Gauguin and Japanese prints. The Van Gogh Museum has an important collection of works on paper by Les Nabis, which includes a large number of woodcuts by Vallotton.
The exhibition Félix Vallotton. Fire beneath the ice displays a mixture of paintings and prints. Around 60 paintings from various international museums, such as the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Kunsthaus Zürich, The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and various private collections, combined with some 40 prints from the Van Gogh Museum’s collection provide an overview of every facet of Vallotton’s oeuvre.
