Miles Aldridge was born 1964 in London, where he lives and works.
He studied illustration at the prestigious Central Saint Martins Collage of Art & Design, and briefly worked as a music video director, before becoming a fashion photographer in the mid 1990s.
Son of Alan Aldridge, a famed psychedelic album-cover graphic designer, Aldridge’s work is immensely vivid and glamorous with a strong cinematic touch, encompassing many diverse influences from film directors including Derek Jarman, David Lynch and Fellini, to the styled elegance of photographers such as Richard Avedon.
Staged to perfection the stars of Aldridge’s surrealistic stories and technicolour dream-like worlds are glamorous, beautiful women. Their immaculate appearance and blank expression leave room for interpretation and, like a mirror for Aldridge’s works at large, hint with a touch of dark humour at the perfected façade of fashion’s glamour and the need for idealised beauty. Moreover, his works are characterised by vivid, fluorescent colours as well as the Hollywood lighting and perfectionist attention to detail.
Aldridge is frequently published in internationally well-known magazines such as Vogue Italia, The New Yorker, TIME, Numéro and the New York Times, while his works are part of renowned museum collections, such as the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the International Center of Photography in New York.
