Photographers in Focus: Miles Aldridge
10 May 2018
London-born artist and fashion photographer Miles Aldridge reflects on a career spent bringing colour—and uncanniness—to the world of fashion in this new episode of Photographers in Focus. Starting out working for Teen Vogue, W, and Harper’s Bazaar, the boundary-pushing artist has long focused on how color can be used as a vibrant, rather than a simply naturalistic, medium. Aldrige has also approached photography as an abstract practice, famously composing an image of a stained cigarette stubbed into a fried egg for a lipstick campaign. His images can unsettle as much as they can bring pleasure, with the models he shoots often caught in beguiling poses, wearing unorthodox expressions. Beyond the world of fashion, he has shot many famous figures, including artist duo Gilbert & George and more recently the cast of Game of Thrones.
