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.
'10 years seems like a life time to some and the blink of an eye to others, when I was starting out I made a 10 year plan, I knew it would take at least that long to achieve some of the things I wanted to achieve. One of my very first series I ever started was a mask series and the first person to be in it was [my friend]. Once she did it, I ended up shooting more and more people for it, here I am 10 years later still working on my mask series. The way I make the photos now is very different, the cameras I use, the lights, everything has changed, but the idea remains the same.' - Tyler Shields
