The first monograph from the brilliant fashion photographer Miles Aldridge. With a cinematic approach to fashion photography, Miles Aldridge creates singular scenes with psychologically complex characters in surreal and fantastic settings. His brilliant, candy-colored images engage viewers with an appealing mix of overt sexuality and sweetness. No detail is left uncovered in his eye-popping, erotically charged fashion photographs, which transform slightly sordid scenarios into acid-hued glamour. Each photograph is a complex world unto itself, and these lush images invite viewers to linger, for there is always something else to see, some deeper layer of meaning to uncover. Including hand-drawn storyboards that Aldridge uses to fix the idea of a shoot in his mind, as well as previously unpublished material, this monograph is filled with intimate insight into the photographer's point of view and process. With deliciously naughty scenes and lushly evocative photography, this book lures readers into Aldridge's irresistible world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The first monograph from iconic London-based fashion photographer Aldridge is an excellent collection of thought-provoking, color-soaked images that will likely stay with the reader long after they've closed the book." Publisher's Weekly

.."his evocative photography will leave you lingering on each page..." Bal Harbour Magazine

"His brilliant, candy-colored images engage viewers with an appealing mix of sexuality and sweetness. each photograph is a world unto itself, and these lush images invite viewers to linger, for there is always something else to see, some deepter layer of meaning to uncover..." lifeandtimes.com

"Color and women - his twin obsessions - star in the collection, filled with glamazons and beauties, sexpots and mothers, while influences from directors David Lynch and Federico Fellini are evident in his cinematic style, as are the psychedelic leanings of his father, Alan Aldridge. "The pictures are an attempt to replicate and reflect contemporary society and life. So I use these amazing women as metaphors or examples of our era." Aldridge told WWD." Women's Wear Daily

"British fashion and fine-art photographer renders fantastic candy colors and cinematic scenes as an absurd play on the roles that women inhabit in the drama of life. Though their moods seem playful at first, the panoply of objects and the disposition of the subjects suggest a darker stereotype: the female image sexualized and objectified in a world based on materialism and fashion." American Photo

"A must-have for those who worship the pages of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, Miles Aldridge's neon-bright monograph...features a collection of the London-bases photographer's cinematic shots. Storyboards and detailed notes offer a rare behind-the-scenes look at the thought process of an international superstar." Boston Magazine

..".a bountiful collection of these thrilling and frankly creepy works..." Vault Magazine

..".a surreal "candy-colored" realm pumped with clashing, over-saturated pop-art colors..." New York Magazine
