SHORT BREATHS, MILES ALDRIDGE

Posted on June 18, 2013 by Editorial Staff

It’s a Miles Aldridge summer. British artist/photographer  is having it’s major retrospective at  Somerset House London called “I Only Want You to Love Me” from 10th July till 29th September 2013 . In parallel with that, London’s premium photography gallery Brancolini Grimaldi is proud to announce its first Aldridge exhibition: a project made of  a complete set of 32 plates from Miles Aldridge’s Carousel, a new limited edition portfolio, as long as some contrasted blocks of pure color applied using silkscreen printing against his iconic images. If you happen to be in London this summer, get two dives into the world of this very special artist.

A slightly uncomfortable quality is what I’m after. I don’t feel like making happy pictures about beautiful models being content… these pictures… they’re pictures of humans not mannequins. They’re troubled, wounded and confused, questioning who they are now that they have everything they want.”
