English photographer Miles Aldridge was born in 1964 in London, where he lives and works. He began taking pictures in 1995 for The Face and English Vogue. A regular contributor to Vogue Italia since 2000, he also publishes in Numéro, Paradis, The New York Times and The New Yorker. A close friend of Tim Walker, Aldridge typifies a photographic agenda whose key words are mise en scène, fiction, humour and veiled allusion. This image typifies certain crucial aspects of his style: a static-shot concentration of real or imaginary movie scenes; a sexy but always detached depiction of the female body; perfect but quasi-unreal nudity; and an abstracted, doll-like model.
