Miles Aldridge. I Only Want You To Love Me #1, 2011

“The King of Color” Miles Aldridge is a favorite photographer and cover artist for magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ, Vanity Fair, Numéro, The New York Times and The New Yorker. Aldridge studied illustration and graphic design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, after which he worked as an illustrator for some time and directed video clips for several years. The turning point for him was 1995, when the editor of British Vogue saw the photographs that he had taken for his girlfriend who was a model. So, by chance, Aldridge became a fashion photographer. Since the early 2000s, his solo exhibitions have been held in the UK, USA, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. In 2013, London’s Somerset House held the first retrospective of the photographer "I Only Want You to Love Me". In 2016, Aldridge created several photographic series in collaboration with renowned contemporary artists. One of these series — the result of the joint work with Maurizio Cattelan, will be presented at the exhibition at the Center for Photography. Miles Aldridge's works are stored in the collections of major museums such as the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), and the International Center for Photography (ICP) (New York).
