Miles Aldridge was born in London in 1964. His father was Alan Aldridge, an artist, graphic designer and illustrator, best known for his psychedelic book illustrations, and record covers for The Beatles and The Who.
Miles Aldridge studied illustration at Central St Martins College of Art in London. Initially working as an illustrator in the 1980’s a series of events unexpectedly directed him towards becoming a fashion photographer in the 1990’s. He has since become a much in demand photographer, working for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The New Yorker, and most importantly, for Vogue Italia. He has worked closely with fashion designers, such as Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, Yves St Laurent, Caroline Herrera and many others.
Since 2008 he has had numerous exhibitions of his photographs worldwide, and has examples of his work in V&A London, the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, International Centre of Photography, New York, and Musée de la Mode, Paris.
