‘Gator’ by Tyler Shields
Have you already seen previews of this collection through our newsletter and social media? You might be able to tell, we’re a little excited to unveil Tyler Shields’ latest series ‘Indulgence’ featuring Hollywood actress Ana Mulvoy Ten, alongside a hungry ‘gator, a Hermes Birkin, and more of our favourite luxury brands.
Shot in downtown LA, it took seven months to receive the Hermes Birkin Bag, a birthday present for Tyler Shields, but only four days to find the alligator. We think they make a snappy pair!
Within hours of this series being released, Tyler Shields received criticism from PETA and even death threats from some reptile sympathizers… would love to know what you think!
These images follow on from his previous Birkin Series, that saw Tyler Shields set fire to, and chainsaw, the red Hermes Birkin Bag, so we are certainly enjoying his return to the destruction of luxury goods!
‘Indulgence’ will be exhibited at Imitate Modern from Thursday 22nd May, so we hope you are able to pop in and have a look, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts, so do get in touch!
