Meet Tyler Shields: celebrity photographer, artist, reality TV star, indie film director, actor, and general madman. Tyler will do anything to capture the shot - the once in a lifetime, un-retouched, subject pushed to their limits, "he did what?" shot. That is what he lives for as an artist. Immersed in the Hollywood scene, surrounded by the bright young things of film and television and the excess that has become their signature, Tyler is looking for something deeper to photograph. Something real. Tyler seeks out the dirty side of glamour. In his first book length collection of photography, Tyler Shield explores the cult of celebrity. In 130 masterfully composed images he strips down movie stars, stretches the boundaries of "good taste", and offers up a stunning visual treat. Tyler has selected a captivating mix of his most famous work and never-before-seen images, including shots of a bloody Lindsay Lohan with a knife, Emma Roberts posed alongside beheaded Barbie dolls, and Francesca Eastwood destroying a $100,000 Hermes handbag with a chainsaw.
Raw and revolutionary The Dirty Side of Glamour captures Tyler's unrestrained creative sprit and offers a visual commentary on fame, excess, and modern youth culture.
