Celebrity Photographer Tyler Shields’ “Historical Fiction”


Celebrity photographer Tyler Shields kicked off the opening of his new, provocative exhibition Historical Fiction at the Andrew Weiss gallery with a private reception sponsored by Three Olives and Strongbow in LA’s Santa Monica this past Saturday.

The exhibit is now open to the public until June 26th at The Andrew Weiss Gallery (2525 Michigan Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90404). Go see the collection – take in the beauty first hand or if you feel so inclined (and have a fat wallet), take a print home for $17,500 and $30,000!

The collection features large-scale color-saturated and black and white photographs of celebrities interpreting iconic moments to 1960s American political and pop culture history. Events include the first men on the moon, the disbanding of The Beatles, the Golden Age of air travel, racial violence, and the deaths of James Dean, John F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Marilyn Monroe.

Stars in the photo exhibit include Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Fillion, Abigail Breslin, Jennifer Morrison, Holland Roden, Rose McIver, and Ana Mulvoy-Ten. Here are some of Minx Society’s favorites:
