Tyler Shields is an LA-based contemporary artist and film-maker, once dubbed as ‘Hollywood’s favourite photographer’. Shields is best known for capturing a new type of American life while exploring the fictional nature of the historic and the classic.
His photographs are often taken in provocative and even life-threatening situations. In some of his most famous series he blows up a Rolls Royce, feeds a Birkin bag to a live alligator and photographs actress Ana Mulvoy Ten next to a python wrapped around a birkin.
