One of My Favorite Photographers

His name is Miles Aldridge. And you won't find much about him on his home page since he reserves this space for a simple slideshow of his portfolio.

A little warning however, he photographs a woman's body without conventional modesty.

His photographs are juicy and colorful, the models are whimsical and almost surreal. But he has a definite understanding of fashion, and portrays slick glamour throughout all of his photographs.

I love his use of contrast, focal point, and texture. And of course the pairing of unlike objects to create striking patterns of deeper meaning.

Hey lady, don't catch your hair on fire!
