PROVOCATEUR: TYLER SHIELDS. Glitterati Incorporated, New York, 2016. 304 pp. with 400 col. ills. 33 x 30 cm. ISBN 9781943876297 In English.

Publisher's description: LA-based photographer Tyler Shields' work has made a big impression, whether it's his photographs of exploding Rolls Royces, alligators clamping their jaws on Birkin bags, or starlets flying through the air in impossibly beautiful arcs. Shields frequently combines the world of Hollywood glamour with his love for the acrobatic (he was an in-line skateboarding champion and worked with legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk), creating a wonderful combustion of movement, color, and subject.

Divided into chapters titled "Floating," "Dreaming," "Pretending," "Remembering," "Cavorting," "Disrupting," and "Wanting," Provocateur offers a collection that is diverse in subject matter and style but always reflects Tyler's unique vision.
