About

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. In the Window of Sothebys London Sotheby's sale, Erotic: Passion and Desire Online from 5–12 February includes a work by renowned photographer Tyler Shields. Considered the Andy Warhol of his generation, Shields has produced images that play with notions of the gaze, power structures, hyper-realism, iconoclastic-tendencies and cinematographic practice, but his Mouthful series of works are among his best known. Sotheby's spoke to him to find out more about his work. "A series of thoughts, images and sensations that occur in the mind. That is the definition of a dream. To me this print represents that a sensation of an image. I had a dream about this before I ever took it, I dreamed of my work being on the main wall of the largest auction, house in the world, but what happens when a dream comes true, do you stop? No it means you only dream bigger and do better! Never stop believing that what you want is possible, don’t try and accomplish today what it takes a year to do, be patient and it will come."
