'Miles sees a colour coordinated, graphically pure, hard-edged reality.‘ (David Lynch)
Miles Aldridge, born 1964 in London rose to prominence in the mid-nineties with his arresting, highly stylised photographs with references to film noir, art history and pop culture. As an acclaimed colourist, he renders elaborate mise-en-scènes in a palette of vibrant acidic hues. These glamorous, frequently eroticised images probe society’s idealised notions of domestic bliss where sinister undercurrents swirl beneath a flawless surface.
Aldridge has worked prolifically for more than twenty-five years, and today he remains one of the few photographers still shooting predominately on film. His creative output encompasses large-scale c-type prints, Polaroids, screenprints, photogravures and drawings. A large collection of Aldridge’s portraits and his work is held in prestigious museums and institutions around the world.
