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.
