Contemporary Photographers

Photography that contains a high amount of visual high-fructose corn syrup (kitschy, over-the-top colours, models and sets photoshopped to rememble androids in a Lord of the Rings movie) dominates those glossy magazines where 30 pages of actual content is packed into 300 pages of ads, with the next effect of a shiny and often smelly (perfume samples!) brick of paper. The world of fashion photography is infinitely larger than the fine-art one, and I typically refrain from linking to it (it’s not like this kind of stuff is hard to find anyway). Occasionally, I do make an exception, though, and here is one, the work of Miles Aldridge. I saw some of his work printed big in Amsterdam, and it is visually quite compelling.
