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 2013 at Somerset House. In 2014 he was invited by Tate Britain to create a photographic installation entitled Carousel as a response to Mark Gertler’s unsettling 1916 painting, Merry-go-Round. He has works in the permanent collection of The National Portrait Gallery, London, The V&A, London and the ICP, New York.
