Born in 1964 - United Kingdom
Miles Aldridge is a British photographer, born in 1964 in London. His father was an artistic director and mother a model. He grew up around famous people from the artistic world, ranging from John Lesson to Eric Clapton. He studied illustration at Central Saint Martins, in London.
He joined a rock group, but simultaneously continued photography and gradually became a fashion photographer. Moreover, he contributed his talent in magazines like Vogue in Japan, Italy on Franca Sozzani's request, for Numéro, Gloss, V, Citizen K, and The New York Times Magazine.
He directed five video clips between 1992 and 1994, for groups like Terrorvision, The Charlatans, The Verve, Ultra Vivid Scene and Michael Brook. He also worked as a photographer for GQ, Longchamp, Mercedes, to name a few.
Many private and public art galleries have hosted Aldridge's photographs around the world: in 2007 the Miami Beach Art Photo Expo; in 2006 and in 2008 the Galerie Alex Daniels in Amsterdam with solo shows The Cabinet and Acid Candy; in 2010 the Contributed Studio for the Arts in Berlin and the Gallery Hotel Art in Florence.
In 2009 Steven Kasher Gallery displayed Pictures for Photographs, his first solo show in the United States. The exhibition and a monographic volume were the peak of a project combining drawings and photographs, born from a collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld and Gerhard Steidl. In New York his work was showcased also at the International Center of Photography with am exhibition entitled Weird Beauty.
In the Summer of 2013, Somerset House in London hosted a major retrospective exhibition of the photographer entitled I Only Want You to Love Me, which brings together large scale photographic prints of works produced during his career.
Aldridge's photographs appear also in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London (with two portraits of Jarvis Cocker and Lily Cole) and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
His monographs include Acid Candy (published by Reflex New Art Gallery, Amsterdam, with an introduction by Glenn O'Brien); The Cabinet (with an introduction by Marilyn Manson), Pictures for Photographs (published by Steidl) and Other Pictures (2012, Steidl).
In 2013, Brancolini Grimaldi (London based Art Gallery in Somerset House) announced a Rizzoli special edition of Aldridge's new book, I Only Want You to Love Me, limited to 200 signed and numbered copies.
Aldridge's latest project is a book made in collaboration with stylist Nicola Formichetti and entitled Zero Zero Vol. 02, that will be presented during the New York Fashion Week.
