A photographer who spent his career bringing color to the world of fashion talks about his creative process.

"I'm not trying to make it real To make a photograph that makes the world look real would seem to be, kind of, pointless. I'm trying to present a fictional world that has more than truth in it."

Miles Aldridge is a London-born fashion photographer most renowned for his passion for striking colors.

"Starting out working for Teen Vogue, W, and Harper's Bazaar, the boundary-pushing artist has long focused on how color can be used as a vibrant, rather than a simply naturalistic, medium. Aldrige has also approached photography as an abstract practice, famously composing an image of a stained cigarette stubbed into a fried egg for a lipstick campaign. His images can unsettle as much as they can bring pleasure, with the models he shoots often caught in beguiling poses, wearing unorthodox expressions. Beyond the world of fashion, he has shot many famous figures, including artist duo Gilbert & George and more recently the cast of Game of Thrones."
