‘…. Miles Aldridge is a director at heart. His images are anything but ‘portraits’ of a subject. They are his actors, his actresses. There is a certainty in his mise-en-scenes, that has drama, tension, panic and tragic desire. Each photograph has a very sacred pathology to every angle and obsession to detail. There is a genius in the very deliberate blankness on the face of his models that enables a transference of identity.’ (Marilyn Manson in his Introduction).
