"For Miles Aldridge "Acid Candy" refers to the hard boiled sweets he had as a kid. But this spirit is also found in the photographic dreams he constructs using a bright, almost plastic, coloured palette in order to illustrate fashions for potential buyers. In admiration, David Lynch describes his work as a ‘colour coordinated, graphically pure, hard-edged reality’. Here some 70 full page, colour photographs created for leading fashion magazines such as Vogue, Numéro and Paradis are presented."--the publisher
