Miles Aldridge (born 1964, London) is a fashion photographer and artist.Born in North London to graphic designer Alan Aldridge, Miles grew up accustomed to celebrity. He studied illustration at the Central St Martins to follow his father’s steps and afterwards briefly directed pop videos.

He moved into photography by chance when he sent some photos of an aspiring model girlfriend to an agency. British Vogue called him as well as her. By then he had hung out on shoots and traveled to New York in the mid-nineties, where he started working almost immediately.

Initially Aldridge shot covers of the American monthly fashion magazine W, then he worked for Numéro, Teen Vogue, Vogue Nippon, The New York Times Magazine, GQ, The New Yorker, The Face, Paradis and Harper’s Bazaar. For many years he has been an important contributor for Vogue Italia, building a solid friendship with Franca Sozzani.

Aldridge worked as an advertising photographer for Longchamp, MAC Cosmetics, Sergio Rossi, Carolina Herrera, Lavazza and Mercedes E-Class, among the others. He shot for noted fashion designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent e Paul Smith. More on Miles Aldridge

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
