WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN…MILES ALDRIDGE



 



Nothing like a long bank holiday weekend to catch up with your sleep, your friends and some culture.

A-Gent of Style headed to Somerset House to catch Miles Aldridge’s I Only Want You to Love Me exhibition.

The largest retrospective – named after a 1976 Fassbinder’s film – of the English fashion photographer and artist’s oeuvre spans his career from the 1990s to the present day and includes previously unpublished material.





Expect to see his best-known large-scale photographs that have made him famous throughout top fashion and art magazines and enter his fabulous Technicolor world: beautiful and glamourous women featuring in highly stylised and sexual, colour-saturated settings of a seemingly perfect world which, on closer look, highlights inner turmoil and neuroses. Often in a supine and dramatic position, his sitters look at times dazed, empty, conflicted, passive, psychotic or ambivalent. His hyperreal, cinematic universe is redolent of famed directors like Buñuel, Fellini, Bergman, Hitchcock, David Lynch and of course photographers like David LaChapelle and Richard Avedon.

And if you want to take Miles Aldridge and his models home, a fabulous book by the same name has been published by Rizzoli to coincide with the exhibition.






















































IT’S A CELEBRATION



 

On this bank holiday weekend, A-Gent of Style will be celebrating two very special people.

 Wishing all my A-Gentees a wonderful time off.

I will be back on Tuesday with a very exciting feature and a talented artist.

Until then…
