Born in Jacksonville, Florida and now recognized as “Hollywood’s favorite photographer”, L.A. based contemporary artist and filmmaker Tyler Shields’ evolution Born in 1982, Shields’ work derives from a unique history directing music videos and making skate videos. Mr. Shields has produced images that play with notions of the gaze, power structures, hyper-realism, iconoclastic-tendencies and cinematographic practice. He has worked with a roster of ranking members of Hollywood. Tyler’s output involves various mediums from book publishing “The Dirty Side of Glamour in 2011, and “Provocateur” 2016, and a cluster of solo shows.

As an artist, Shields’ work and output has much more to do with the long-standing and perhaps transcendental clarity behind controlled subconscious image-making in the vein of Caravaggio’s near photographic paintings in the 16th century, where rules and guidelines of the century were abandoned and / or re-incorporated to challenge the sensibilities of the time. In this regard, the artist’s work is as equally controversial with other image-makers who have utilized the tools of sex, death, flesh, obsession, nightmares and fantasy to explore the peculiarity of the human condition rendered into a coherent aesthetic clarity and style. Tyler Shields captures a new type of American life while exploring the fictional nature of the historical and the classic.
