FRANK FLUEGEL GALLERY, with a strong focus on Contemporary Art and Pop Art will hold its opening reception in Nuernberg/Germany for the new show „Miles Aldridge – Dazzling beauty“ from 7pm to 9pm on Friday, September 28th 2018. On view are new photographs by the British artist. The exhibition runs through December 22th 2018.
Aldridge was born in 1964 in London to designer Alan Aldridge. He started to study design, but changed to video shooting. In the 1990s he got in contact with the British Vogue and began his career as a photographer. He has worked together with Vogue, Harper`s Bazaar, GQ, The New Yorker, The Face and the New York Times among others. He also worked for fashion designers as Lagerfeld and Armani and did shootings for numerous brands, from cosmetics to car companies.
The works of Aldridge are on permanent display in several museums in London and the International Center of Photography, New York. During the last ten years the photographer had many solo exhibitions in the USA, Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, France, Holland and Poland.
His most known artistic influences are the directors David Lynch and Federico Fellini as well as the graphic design of his father Alan, who created album covers for musicians as The Who or Elton John.
The portrait- and fashion-photography of Aldridge shows a distinctive colorfulness. Aldridge stages his models and settings right up to artificiality and parody. That way he challenges the alleged perfection of his models as well as the unrealistic image of women in advertisement and fashion.
