Hey guys I wanted to share this book with you that I just found out about! Together, Photographer Miles Aldridge and M.A.C Cosmetics have produced an iconic photography book called, Miles of M.A.C. I was over my makeup artist Alex house when I saw the book and it has all sorts of fancy smancy images that are breathtaking! If you love photography added with a hint of lustrous makeup, you will like this coffee table book!
Released from Rizzoli this past September, the tome collects nearly a decade’s worth of collaboration – including those images thought too extreme to use in the brand’s campaigns in the first place. The book has been compiled by James Gager – M.A.C’s creative director – and is a testament to a close friendship between himself and Miles over the course of eight years.
Gager told Dazed that he hoped “this book will offer young art directors, make up artists, hair stylists and photographers a glimpse in terms of what truly is possible if you let yourself go with it and go there.” The book also features contributions from M.A.C icons and collaborators like Nicola Formichetti, Iris Apfel and Daphne Guinness
