Aldridge’s work is highly controlled with a cinematic effect. His Wikipedia page cites his influences as film directors Derek Jarman, David Lynch and Fellini and the photographer Richard Avedon, as well as the psychedelic graphic design of his father, Alan Aldridge.

Aldrige’s photography is filled with glamorous, beautiful 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 imagine their inner lives. The surreal, David Lynchian context of his photos telegraph the possibility that these dream-like scenarios could just as easily transform into nightmares.

Pink Thing of the Day: Jayne Mansfield’s Pink Palace

Did you know that legendary Hollywood movie actress /sex symbol Jayne Mansfield and her husband, Mickey Hargitay, once lived in a mansion that was known as The Pink Palace? While it was painted pink on the outside and had a pretty crazy Pink Bathroom (that was not only carpeted wall to wall but also floor to ceiling) few of the interior rooms had a pink color scheme. Still, The Pink Palace – which included a custom-designed, heart shaped swimming pool — had a unique design aesthetic and no shortage of over-the-top decor! See more photos of Jayne and The Pink Palace, which was demolished in 2002, at This Link.

It’s sad enough that actress Farrah Fawcett has lost her long battle with cancer today, June 25th, 2009. It’s worse that Michael Jackson’s death on this same date will forever obliterate the news of her passing. She fought the good fight.

Update: Check out this fantastic Remembrance on the Tenth Anniversary of her Death.

R.I.P. Natasha Richardson
