Women and colour are Aldridge’s twin obsessions. Aldridge’s work has never been constrained by the demands of the fashion world. Working like an auteur filmmaker, his view of the world is wide and deep. His many influences include film directors such as David Lynch and Federico Fellini; the styled elegance of fashion photographer Richard Avedon and the psychedelic illustrations of his father, Alan Aldridge. Each image is immaculately crafted, often starting with story-board drawings so that the final image lies somewhere between cinema and photography.
??His works can be found in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. In addition he was invited to create a series of photographic prints, inspired by art, to celebrate the opening of the new Tate Britain.
