A fiercely original photographer, Miles Aldridge is best known for the technicolor dream-like worlds he creates and the glamorous, beautiful women who inhabit them. Aldridge creates ultra-cinematic images, drawing inspiration from film directors such as David Lynch and Federico Fellini as well as the psychedelic graphic design of his father, Alan Aldridge.
Aldridge's photographs often depict women in haute-Stepford mode splashed with lurid candy colors. He captures his subjects in a state of dramatic contemplation, making them more complicated and intriguing than simply beautiful. As Glenn O’Brien describes, ‘Miles Aldridge constructs dreams. He understands the essential ingredients of the dream and he uses impeccable instinct in crafting the fragmented narratives an exquisite tapestry of right and wrong [defying] our waking order of things, our expectations and sensibility.’
