Miles Aldridge has a multi-faceted artistic background. He studied illustration and directed pop videos before he dabbled in fashion photography. His shots are often filled with loud colors and glamorous women with blank expressions. Miles’ work has been published in a variety of magazines including some big names like The New York Times, American Vogue, and Vogue Italia. When asked about his subjects’ expressions, he said: “These women aren’t blank because they have nothing to say, they are blank because they’re overwhelmed by their world." He also added: “To me, the great moments in Hollywood are close-ups of a woman’s face, thinking, and she’s just realized that her whole world is wrong."
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
