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 Derek Jarman 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.
Born in London, Miles Aldridge studied illustration at Central St. Martins and worked as a music video director before officially starting his career as a fashion photographer in 1993. Within six months of his first assignment, a portrait of the playwright Christopher Hampton, Aldridge was shooting covers for W Magazine.
