A Look Into Miles Aldridge’s “I Only Want You To Love Me”



With a cinematic approach, Miles Aldridge, creates singular scenes with psychologically complex characters often in surreal settings. His brilliant, candy-colored images engage viewers with an appealing mix of sexuality and sweetness. Each photograph is a world unto itself, and these lush images invite viewers to linger, for there is always something else to see, some deeper layer of meaning to uncover. No detail is left uncovered in these erotically charged images which transform slightly sordid scenarios into acid-hued glamour. Including hand-drawn storyboards that Aldridge uses to fix the idea of a shoot in his mind, as well as previously unpublished material, Rizzoli’s new book titled Miles Aldridge: I Only Want You To Love Me is filled with intimate insight into the photographer’s point of view and process. Featuring deliciously naughty scenes and evocative photography, Miles Aldridge: I Only Want You to Love Me lures readers into Aldridge’s irresistible world. Here, we take a look inside.
