Gallery Label
‘Selling Dreams: One Hundred Years of Fashion Photography’, 2014. Label text: Miles Aldridge (b.1964) Le Manège Enchanté #4 Numero, 2007 The electrifying hues of this image are reminiscent of the work of 1930s photographers such as Madame Yevonde, who produced rich, jewel-like colours through the Vivex photographic process. Although luscious and visually alluring, this image carries a dark ambiguity: is the model sleeping or dead? Lambda print Given by Miles Aldridge Museum no. E.969-2010 (07 03 2014)
