In conjunction with the publication of his book a collection of Miles Aldridge’s work is being displayed at Somerset House, starting today and continuing until the 29th of September. His work is filled with glamorous, beautiful women from dazed housewives and decadent beauties to sunbathing sexpots and ecstatic Virgins. Luscious colours dazzle from every image – but the technicolour dream world of seemingly perfect women with blank expressions belies a deeper sense of disturbance and neurosis.
This is the largest exhibition of his work to date and will include large-scale photographic prints from throughout his career including previously unpublished material as well as hand-drawn story-boards, drawings, polaroids and magazines, offering an intimate insight into Aldridge’s point of view and process.
Well worth a visit!
