Miles Aldridge is a British fashion photographer.
Best known for his cinematic images of women, Aldridge’s work is often brightly lit by fluorescent colors and depicts a world that is at once glamorous and surreal. He aggressively confronts themes of religion, popular culture, and 1950s Americana through his signature brand of moody imagery and dark humor.
Born in 1964 in London, England to famed album-cover graphic designer Alan Aldrige, he grew up surrounded by celebrities like John Lennon and Eric Clapton, fostering an early interest in pop culture and art. After studying illustration at the Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, Aldridge worked as a music video director, and in 1993, turned to fashion photography.
His work has since appeared in many publications, including W magazine, Vogue, The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaae, and The New Yorker. His photographs are also held in numerous permanent collections including the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the International Center of Photography in New York.
