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. 'You would think with all the selfies in the world people would look at themselves a little more, we have to look at ourselves to grow to change and to be better. This was an image I had in my head for a long time, you may wondering how I am able to do this, but that's a whole other story that not everyone knows (when I was younger I was a pro athlete) I knew one day I wouldn't be able to do this, and I would want this documented.; This is my self portrait from my Suspense series, this was the first print from that series to sell. It's not often I am in the photos but this was very special to me, my first self portrait ever in a gallery or as a print.' -Tyler Shields Collection: Suspense Available Sizes: 20' x 30' Edition of 3; 28' x 40' Edition of 3; 40' x 60' Edition of 3; 48' x 72' Edition of 3
