Sept. 14-Oct. 4
A Jacksonville, FL native, Shields has spent the last few decades making a name for himself in Los Angeles, CA, and has become a creative tour de force in the photography & film industries. The photographer’s willingness to test boundaries has earned him praise from critics around the world. Often collaborating with celebrities, models, comedians, athletes, and actors for his provocative projects, Shields’ photographs are iconic and are making their mark in prestigious collections around the world. There are few artists who – through tremendous study of the works of those who came before them – change the recourse of photography, and Shields is one of them.
the exhibition run will feature photographs from his latest Fairytale, Lion, and Chicago series, as well as a collection of floral still-life photographs inspired by Irving Penn’s work, and a collection of Shields’ personal favorites from his Dirty Side of Glamour and Provocateur series.
