Please join this rare opportunity open exclusively to CUCL, to have an intimate chat with the iconic British photographer Miles Aldridge and explore his works over a talk and drinks in his studio. The evening will provide a much needed respite from the gray weather with a talk on the dynamic and vibrant works by the artist himself.
Miles Aldridge was born in London in 1964. He studied at Central St. Martins and after graduating worked briefly as an illustrator before coming to photography. His photographs have appeared in museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide including in 2013 a major retrospective of his work entitled I Only Want You to Love Me at Somerset House. In 2014 he was invited by Tate Britain to create a photographic installation entitled Carousel II as a response to Mark Gertler’s 1916 painting, Merry - go - Round . There are several monographs on his work, including Pictures for Photographs (2009), Other Pictures (2012); and Please return Polaroid (2016) which chronicles his creative process through the use of Polaroids. Miles’ portraits of Viola Davis and The Game of Thrones cast were amongst those selected by TIME magazine for their Best Portraits of 2017. He has works in the permanent collection of The British Museum, The National Portrait Gallery and The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the International Centre of Photography in New York.
