Tyler Shields BEYOND THE GATES
Private View: 23rd February 2012
Show Runs: 24th Feb – 19th March 2012
After an incredibly successful debut show in London last year, Tyler Shields, described by the Daily Mail as “Hollywood’s Favourite Photographer” and considered by GQ as one of the 100 Best Things In The World, now returns to Imitate Modern with Beyond The Gates.
The new body of work which will be on display at Imitate Modern has been heavily influenced by Tyler Shields’ muse and girlfriend Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood). Featuring in many of his images, she gives them a romantic and scenic feel. It is hard to believe that this is the same photographer who brought us the infamous blood soaked Lindsay Lohan portraits a year ago. Beyond The Gates promises to be as every bit controversial and exciting if not more so as Tyler Shields takes his photography in a new direction.
