Miles Aldridge

Miles Aldridge is, I must say, the most amazing photographer I have ever seen. His work uses strange lighting that lends it a surreal, almost creepy air. He puts his subjects in strange positions with strange backgrounds. His website is even stranger- to get to the website without sitting through a very long slide show of his portfolio, you have to click on the picture showing (which will put it in full screen mode), then press the Escape key, then click on the picture again. There is an eerie tune playing in the background as you mull over his disturbingly beautiful photographs. How many times have I said strange in the last paragraph?
Well, anyways his work is most likely an acquired taste. And I do like strange things, but others may not. You will either love it or hate it-but at least check it out. If you like it, you will be hooked for life.
