Tyler Shields: Decadence

Debauchery prevails in Mayfair for a new exhibition titled ‘Decadence’ by Hollywood’s favourite photographer, Tyler Shields…

In a subversive nod to his infamous work with Hollywood’s hippest, Decadence is set in the court of Marie Antoinette. The coolest names in indie stardom luxuriate in the pomp and splendour of the rooms of Versailles, a tongue-in-cheek collaboration between iconic visual artist and America’s freshest talent.

A cast of young Hollywood actors and models take centre stage in this sumptuous new body of work, with Shields on playful form as he invites his new muses to recreate the decadence and self-indulgence at the heart of Marie Antoinette’s Versailles. Courtiers include Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Holland Roden, Isabelle Fuhrman, Lydia Hearst, Jaime King and Tallulah Willis.

Shields collaborates with his subjects to produce bold, hard-hitting work which has seen him graduate from bad boy photographer to artist, filmmaker and cultural commentator. Tyler Shields captures a new type of American life while exploring the fictional nature of the historical and the classic.
