You will all know his ultra-glam, ultra-glossy, porcelain faced models in various thros of emotion even if you don’t know the techni-colour photogs name, yet. A few posts back I spammed a few of my favourite things which accompanied 2 of my favourite fashion images ever. The photog himself, Miles Aldridge has a new exhibition opening at one of fashions main arteries, Somerset House. The exhibition is called “I only want you to love me..” and looks explosively fun and decadent.
10 July – 29 September 2013
Embankment Galleries East, South Wing

“Women and colour are Aldridge’s twin obsessions. 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 – blood red ketchup splashes against a black and white floor; a mouth drips with gold; egg yolk oozes across a plate. But the technicolour dream world of seemingly perfect women with blank expressions belies a deeper sense of disturbance and neurosis. Look more closely and there is silent screaming, a head pushed down on a bed, a face covered in polythene, a woman pushing an empty swing.”
