.".his evocative photography will leave you lingering on each page..." "Bal Harbour Magazine

""A must-have for those who worship the pages of "Vogue" and "Harper's Bazaar", Miles Aldridge's neon-bright monograph...features a collection of the London-bases photographer's cinematic shots. Storyboards and detailed notes offer a rare behind-the-scenes look at the thought process of an international superstar."" Boston Magazine"

."..a bountiful collection of these thrilling and frankly creepy works..." " Vault Magazine "

.."his evocative photography will leave you lingering on each page..." "Bal Harbour Magazine
""His brilliant, candy-colored images engage viewers with an appealing mix of sexuality and sweetness. each photograph is a world unto itself, and these lush images invite viewers to linger, for there is always something else to see, some deepter layer of meaning to uncover..." " lifeandtimes.com
""Color and women - his twin obsessions - star in the collection, filled with glamazons and beauties, sexpots and mothers, while influences from directors David Lynch and Federico Fellini are evident in his cinematic style, as are the psychedelic leanings of his father, Alan Aldridge. "The pictures are an attempt to replicate and reflect contemporary society and life. So I use these amazing women as metaphors or examples of our era." Aldridge told "WWD.""" Women's Wear Daily
""British fashion and fine-art photographer renders fantastic candy colors and cinematic scenes as an absurd play on the roles that women inhabit in the drama of life. Though their moods seem playful at first, the panoply of objects and the disposition of the subjects suggest a darker stereotype: the female image sexualized and objectified in a world based on materialism and fashion." " American Photo

I took my fiancé to see this exhibition in Somerset House. After seeing this I really wanted to see more of this collection. They are such striking and intricate photographs. The models look complacent and uninterested whilst their backgrounds scream the opposite. The colours are loud and strong, whereas the objects are shattered and broken. I love when art comes alive with meaning, and particularly involving fashion, there's magically dark results.

Vacuously beautiful woman gaze blankly past the camera in surreal situations, their expressions completely devoid of any emotion, compassion or feelings of any kind. Imagine The Stepford Wives doing a Vogue shoot - if David Lynch was a fashion photographer, these are the photographs he would take. The fashions & make up are reminiscent of the film star glamour of the fifties & sixties. The images he produces are unsettlingly eerie but hypnotic. The models wander through sets as though unable to see what is happening around them, only concerned with their own agenda, looking more like shop mannequins than real people. They hold their children as if they were another prop, no love, no care. They are unaware of their nakedness in restaurants, pool rooms, the back of limousines. You find yourself wondering whether they are so lost in their own thoughts because they are so unconcerned with the real world or if they actually have any thoughts at all.

Disturbing, but thought provoking - are they artistic images or Aldridge's view of society - I have no idea, but these are haunting images you find that no matter how much you want to, you can't turn away from.
