8 March 2014 - 10 May 2014
Miles Aldridge (*1964), born in London, studied at Central St. Martins, became a director of music videos, and then a fashion photographer in the 1990s. His work mixes autobiographical themes with influences as wide ranging as the fashion photographer Richard Avedon, film directors like Hitchcock, Lynch and Fellini and his father Alan Aldridge, the legendary art director, who created seminal artworks for The Beatles. Aldridge’s photographs always transmit a certain cinematic feeling. “Miles sees a colour coordinated, graphically pure, hard-edged reality”, says David Lynch about Aldridge’s work.
