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. 'There is something special that happened in this photo, so much so that [my friend] called me to ask if it was fake, which I informed him of course it was not! Capturing a starburst in a photo is hard, getting 2 or 3 in one photo is very very hard 5 next to impossible, this photo has 7 something I have never captured before, I wish I could say I planned it, but you can't plan the magic moments, you have to allow them to happen and when they do be thankful you got them.' -Tyler Shields Collection: Fairytale Available Sizes: 18 x 18 Edition of 3; 30 x 30 Edition of 3; 45 x 45 Edition of 3; 59 x 59 Edition of 3
