The Huffington Post sat down with Tyler Shields to discuss his latest exhibition “Mouthful” which opens on May 20th at the Ace Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. Tyler’s exhibit features some of the stars from The Hunger Games film including Josh Hutcherson(Peeta Mellark) and Kalia Prescott(D3 Tribute). here’s what he had to say about “Mouthful”
How did you conceive of the shots with the ‘Hunger Games’ stars? Was there a unifying theme linking the photos?
TS: It’s funny; they have been friends of mine for years and I shot Josh Hutcherson for the first time when he was 16. They are all incredible kids and it just worked out they were put in the movie together.
HP: You photograph a wide range of young female stars. How do their celebrity personas (from squeaky clean to on the verge) affect the shoot?
TS: If [an actress] plays a “squeaky clean” person on TV that may not be what she really is as a person so I just try to give her the opportunity to show another side to the world. It’s fun; we are making art together and a lot of people get to see it!
Most recently Tyler Shields had a photo shoot with Leven Rambin, who plays Glimmer in The Hunger Games.
