Imitate Modern is proud to announce that Phillips Auction House in London will be auctioning one photograph by Tyler Shields on November 6th 2015 at Berkeley Square.
Last year’s world-renowned Bunny photograph staring Page Ruth is the glorious work of the LA based photographer to be going up for sale next Friday. Famous for his often risque photographs, Shields seeks to capture beautiful models and celebrities and portray them in editorial images with an uncomfortable and often surrealistic atmosphere. The viewer is often caught staring at his artworks with voyeuristic pleasure until they become aware of their own rudeness and embarrassment…that is the power of Tyler Shields photography.
“I wanted to take wild, crazy, sexy, violent, provocative images unlike anything anyone had done before in the over-protective world of entertainment.”
Last year, Tyler’s 2011 Kodak image sold for £12,500 at Philips; first time in its history to have changed owners. We are hoping for a similar success with this years auction.
