Series 5: Meet The Photographers - Fine Art Photography Boxsets
Episode 1: Miles Aldridge
In this episode Miles and Rosa talk about the colour selection process, the effect homelife has on art and domestic madness.
Miles Aldridge (born 1964) is one of Britain’s most celebrated fashion photographers, who has worked for a number of international publications, including American and Italian Vogue, The New Yorker and The New York Times. Best known for his cinematic images of women, Aldridge’s work is often brightly lit by fluorescent colors and depicts a world that is at once glamorous and surreal. He aggressively confronts themes of religion, popular culture, and 1950s Americana through his signature brand of moody imagery and dark humor.
EPISODE 2: Sandro Miller
In this podcast with Sandro Miller we discuss his long time collaboration with his muse John Malkovic, his upcoming feature film, how to get a snake charmer to pose for a picture and capturing indigenous tribes that are in danger of terminal westernisation.
Sandro Miller is an American photographer known for his expressive images who has been photographing people for over thirty years. With numerous award-winning campaigns to his credit, Sandro is one of today’s foremost photographers. His work explores the limits of portraiture in both commercial and fine art photography. Typically working under the simplified “Sandro,” the photographer maintains supreme focus on the body, revealing his subject’s interiority through posture and expression. His evocation of emotion is even more potent in his solo works, as faces and bodies dominate his compositions, leaving little room for distraction from the people he captures. Sandro’s most prolific muse and model is undoubtedly John Malkovich, whose photograph as Pope John paul is featured in his boxset.
