Miles Aldridge completely redefines the artistic "muse" in this photoseries featuring leggy model Kristen McMenamy. Poised as the inferred model for a series of paintings inside a paint-riddled studio, McMenamy takes on the role of "muse" both as subject of the photos and the paintings surrounding her. Aldridge mirrors the garish, saturated hues of the paintings in the light and tint of the photos themselves, lending a self-referential feel to each composition. Aldridge challenges the border between fine art, photography and fashion.
