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. 'Movies can transport us to a first kiss a first date the last time you held someone's hand, sitting in bed together watching a great film, and even if the person changes the film, stays the same as does the memory. When I made this photograph I had a very specific idea, I wanted a giant screen with 1950s cars. What I wanted didn't exist so with the help of an amazing team we built it. We brought in the cars the dirt and [my friend] spent weeks making this screen for me. This was a large undertaking, but I could not get this image out of my head.' - 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
