Tyler Shields is photographer, film director, and writer, best known for his images of Hollywood celebrities. Known for his controversial and violent images, and frequently drawing criticism from animal rights activists and women's groups, his photographs capture much of the most over-the-top, brutal aspects of contemporary celebrity culture. Born in Jacksonville, Florida and now recognized as "Hollywood's favorite photographer", contemporary artist and filmmaker Tyler Shields' evolution from the "bad boy of photography" with his controversial blood-stained photographic series featuring Lindsay Lohan to the more subtle color-explosive poesy of his Chromatic series, and his work featuring Francesca Eastwood (Clint's daughter) to the fire-starting bag-sawing antics of a $100,00 Hermes Birkin Bag, to the stoic magic surrealism of Suspense, a project shot in the New Mexico desert featuring Franseca Eastwood, Emma Roberts and Lydia Hearst, Mr. Shield's art captures the emergence of an artist and his medium into a more mature overture and output. Tyler Shields is an American image-maker. 'Butterflies with Ali Collier this photograph took over a month to make and over 23 butterflies. When I started this I had no idea the process of getting a butterflies wings to open without destroying them, also all the difference in size shape color and type of butterflies, I also had to find the right size face and look for the photo and time it with when the wings would open which took 5 days in a custom humidity box we made. Also, I shot this on a large format 8 by 10 camera. ' - Tyler Shields Available Sizes: 22.5 x 30 Edition of 3; 30 x 40 Edition of 3; 45 x 60 Edition of 3; 54 x 72 Edition of 3
