Rollei Royale: Psychedelic Portraits of Game of Thrones Characters

2017-07-17

George R.R. Martin's "The Game of Thrones" series and the adaptation is one of the 21st century's most iconic pop culture works, and it's easy to see why -- it was revolutionary. And the 'War of the Roses'-inspired book and show just continue to entertain us with bloody human drama.

And TIME Magazine notices its strong influence all over the world. Below, your Mother Dragon and the House of Stark:

Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen; Kit Harington as John Snow; Maisie Williams as Arya Stark; Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark by Miles Aldridge

These Game of Thrones portraits by renowned photographer Miles Aldridge were taken with a Rolleiflex 6001 and a Kodak Ektar 100 film. Aldridge's cinematic style borrows from his roster of camera artist-inspirations -- David Lynch, Antonio Antonioni, Derek Jarman, Richard Avedon, and Federico Fellini.

Enter the intriguing members of the House of Lannister:

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister; Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister; Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister by Miles Aldridge

Aldridge's style here is a far cry from the medieval England aesthetics and is instead reminiscent of Hollywood sets from the 1940's and 1960's with its bright, oversaturated colors, meant to show how GoT's characters have taken television while keeping the mystical, dark setting of Westeros.

And last but not the least, the mandatory group portrait.
