Photographer Tyler Shields has the pop culture world a-buzz. His photo shoot with Heather Morris from Glee was one of the biggest news stories in American entertainment television; his exhibition in London made headlines in the UK papers; and his work with Lindsay Lohan made international news. His body of work often features his muse and girlfriend, Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Hollywood veteran, Clint Eastwood.
Tyler Shields is a celebrity photographer like no other--he doesn't work with editors to produce pretty pictures to sell magazines. He works with the biggest artists of our time to make art. Whether death-defying action shots, studio photography or location shoots, Tyler points out that no special effects, Photoshop, or any type of manipulation is used in his work.
Tyler Shields exhibits around the world and in 2012 has solo shows scheduled in Los Angeles, London, New York, Moscow, and Cincinnati. His collectors’ list is every bit as impressive as his collaborators, with movie, TV stars and studio heads owning his very limited edition works. Tyler's Hollywood shows have featured installations and provocative happenings, resulting in their often gaining more media exposure than most movie premieres. He is currently working on his new book The Dirty Side of Glamour. He has recently been commissioned to direct a feature length film, "Final Girl"; and has published the second in his completed series of six novels—“Richest Man” follows "Smartest Man”.
Open to the general public, Tyler Shields is the guest of honor at the opening party for Tyler Shields: Controlled Chaos exhibition Friday, October 12, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Miller Gallery in Hyde Park Square. Controlled Chaos is Miller Gallery’s contribution to Fotofocus, the 2012 photography biennial.
