MILES ALDRIDGE


The creations of Miles Aldridge gathered in a personal exhibition in Florence. 18 photos, together with his doodles and drawings, to follow his creative process

This is your first exhibition in Italy. A very important event for you.


I'm very enthusiastic of having been invited to Florence. For me this city is the cradle of Renaissance, an extraordinary smithy of creativity, of ideas. Some of my works are influenced by artists of the Renaissance, like Pisanello.



Therefore you're very interested in the world of art. Is this the reason why you show your pictures together with your drawings?
Doing photography nowadays is very different from the 1960s. With Photoshop, my work is more similar to that of a painter than to a photographer. Today's photographers work with their computers, everything can be controlled, manipulated. In a way we are "drawing" the picture, we're more free to modify it afterwards. For me photography is like film-making, even painters of the Renaissance used their art to tell stories.



When you did your exhibition in Amsterdam you claimed you didn't appreciate the fact that journalists, and media in general, always speak about your background, your father, your story.
Actually I'm not annoyed by the fact that they speak about my father, he was a great artist and influenced my work a lot. But the same goes for my mother, even if in a different way. When I work, I think about her very often. I imagine her as the leading character of a film, a woman with an intense life, also made of very unhappy moments (like the divorce from my father), but anyway out of the normal routine. In short, I can't imagine her while doing the washing up. I think every woman has her secret life, made up of unspeakable secrets, a life that maybe does not exist and that she only lives in her dreams. And that's what I want to capture.

You think about your mother even when you take pictures of your wife?
I actually think about all the possible female figures: the wife, the mother, the prostitute... In my head every woman is a kind of mixture of all these figures. I've always been fascinated by women. If I think about my mother, my sister, my wife, I realize there are some common threads for all of them: their beauty, their anxieties, their frustrations... When I take a picture of a woman, I think of her like in a movie, but, after all, life is so rich in drama.

Is there an episode, a moment, of your career that you remember in particular?
When I started I didn't know anything about photography. I was lucky: my girlfriend was a model, someone saw my pictures, liked them and invited me to Vogue UK to talk about the meaning of being a real photographer. That's how I became a photographer, by chance. And I really liked that job, because everyday there was a different woman coming into my studio. Unfortunately I constantly fell in love with each one of them, and when I had to go back home I felt very depressed. I had a lot of success very quickly, I went to New York, I became famous. However, underneath I am still an amateur, and I like it. I remember I was once with Linda Evangelista: I was watching her in the eye from behind my camera and she was doing the same with me; I told her "open your mouth", she did that and I thought: "Oh God. How can she be that sexy?." The best thing is that when you are watching a woman through the camera lens and she's watching you back from the other side, it's like entering another world, where everything is possible, where you are in control of reality. You can become a Fellini, a Hitchcock.

For the Florence exhibition at the Brancolini Grimaldi Arte Contemporanea (May 6th-Sept 1st), Vogue.it exclusively presents a special show dedicated to Aldridge with his work for Vogue Italia (2008 and 2009) together with backstage videos.

This interview above just adds to all the reasons I appreciate Aldridge. Amazing to me that, still to this day, he makes comments like "underneath I am still an amateur, and I like it.". Speaks to an understanding that there's always room for growth.
