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. 'We have become so used to being lied to with visual effects green screen and computer enhancement, we automatically assume things are fake, I was having a conversation with my dear friend, and he assumed the gator was fake in the Gator Birkin and I realized that must be a normal thought because who is crazy enough to use a real gator? I am the intensity was level 10 this day as her face inches closer and closer to the gator, it was as though this photo was always meant to exist because the gator played its part perfectly.' - Tyler Shields Collection: Indulgence Available Sizes:; 30' x 40' Edition of 3; 54' x 72' Edition of 3
