I only want you to love me: Miles Aldridge’s Stepford sexuality

Photographer Miles Aldridge poses women in traditional roles. Secretary, socialite, stay-at-home mom — you’ll see all of these portrayed in his work. But looking deeper you notice that something is deeply, horribly wrong. These women, while engaged in what might be enjoyable activities, all possess the dull stare of living mannequins.

Now Steven Kasher Gallery is presenting a showing of Aldridge’s work. Cinematic in scope while skewering fashion, sexism, and consumerism, the show will run from May 8 through June 8, 2013. Aldridge will be signing copies of his new books, I Only Want You to Love Me and Other Pictures, at the opening on May 8 from 6 to 8 PM.

Check out some images of his work below.
