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. 'The day was warm we hiked for over a mile to get here, the water was dark and could have been filed with god knows what, I had 2 cameras with me I elected for the Pentax 67, there were 3 frames left of film, (it's hard to change film in a swamp so you want to get it while you can) at any moment a creature could have come up in the water and ended the shot, but patience was required, in my mind I thought I want her attitude, before I could speak a word she looked at the person standing behind me smirked and gave this pose a perfect pose I quickly fired off my 3 frames praying nothing was wrong with the film, no jams no light leaks, because it felt special from the moment I took it. Girl in the pond.' - Tyler Shields
