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 arenít as perfect as they seem. Itís 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.
