These beautiful collector’s items will be available from the Art on a Postcard online shop in time for Christmas.
Miles Aldridge (British, b.1964) is a fashion photographer widely known for his distinctive over-saturated, surreal, and glamorous photographs. In his work, Aldridge sets a stage and mood akin to the great Hollywood directors of the 1940s through 1960s. Infused with intense colour, light, and drama, his women and men are always beautiful and detached. The women he portrays, in particular, are often caught in dark or mysterious situations.
Aldridge’s photographs have been exhibited in the Miami Beach Art Expo (2007); the Galerie Alex Daniels, Amsterdam (2006 and 2008); the Contributed Studio for the Arts, Berlin (2010); the Gallery Hotel Art, Florence (2010); his first United States solo show, The Cabinet and Acid Candy, was displayed at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York City (2009). His work is in numerous permanent collections including the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the International Center of Photography, New York.
