Fashion Eye Córdoba By Miles Aldridge
British photographer Miles Aldridge first visited Córdoba in 1989 and happened to arrive during Semana Santa (Holy Week). Still a student, the experience left a lasting mark on him, along with vivid memories of sights, sounds and smells. Here, he revisits his initial impressions, inspired by the life and writings of Federico García Lorca. In contrast with his studio work, Miles Aldridge took these images with a Leica, using only available light. Politics, religion, family and kitsch intertwine with surrealistic elements to unfurl a rich flow of perceptions in colour as well as black and white.
Born in London in 1964, Miles Aldridge is a graduate of Central Saint Martins and began his career as an illustrator and music video director before turning to photography. His first images were published in The Face and British Vogue in 1995. As well as appearing in the world's leading magazines, his work features in the collections of prestigious institutions including the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Palais Galliera in Paris and the International Centre of Photography in New York.
Inspired by the House's travel heritage, the Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye Collection evokes cities, regions or countries through the eyes of fashion photographers, from emerging talents to industry legends. Each title in the series features an extensive selection of large-format photographs, together with biographical information and an interview with the photographer or a critical essay. After Louis Vuitton City Guides and Travel Books, this third collection presents travel photography with a fashion perspective, as the chosen photographers all infuse their images of great cities, faraway places or dream destinations with their unique vision.
