We are pleased to announce the presence of photographer Juergen Teller at Filaf (Festival International du Livre d'Art et du Film), in Perpignan. Juergen will come as an honor guest and will receive an award for all the publications that he has made.
At the end of the month, we will be in London to interview the great artist and fashion photographer Miles Aldridge for Filaf Annual 3.
His work is filled with glamorous women, whose perfect appearance and blank expression could be interpreted as passivity and ambivalence. Aldridge, however, prefers to define his women as in a state of contemplation, so that we are asked to imagine their inner lives. And the technicolour dream-like worlds he creates aren’t as perfect as they seem. There is silent screaming, broken glass, a head pushed down on a bed, the blood red of ketchup against a black and white floor. It’s a dream that could just as easily turn into a nightmare.
