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.
'Let the lovers love. Romance comes at a price, white noise can corrupt even the most innocent of lovers, doubt turns to fear and fear turns to failure, there was a time when this Love was forbidden, lives were lost over it, worlds torn apart, but love will find its place no matter how many people fight it, the trick you ask, you can never stop fighting.
You can only quantify love at one point in life the moment you are heart broken, if you weigh yourself the moment before and the moment after you will way less after, because love has weight and when its taken from you a piece of you is gone thats the only true way to measure love.' - Tyler Shields
