Characterized by a great freedom of action in his work as a photographer, Miles has managed to create a unique style, very recognizable and published by the biggest magazines. A style that combines his studies at Central St. Martins in London, the influences of visionary filmmakers such as David Lynch and Federico Fellini, the elegance of Richard Avedon and the memories of the illustrations of his father Alan.
To consider the totality of his work, from July 10 at Somerset House in London will hold a major retrospective of this photographer, I Only Want You to Love Me where they will be exposed images made during his entire career.
In conjunction with the exhibition at Somerset House, also in London, it will take place Short Breaths,from September 12 to 28 at the Brancolini Grimaldi gallery, with large-scale prints devoted to sensuality, told in the language of Miles.
All the images from both of the exhibitions will be collected in a book published by Rizzoli International.
Another project, is one of the last collaborations that Miles Aldridge has done with the stylist Nicola Formichetti, entitled Zero Zero Volume 02, which will be presented shortly in New York during Fashion Week .
