As February has officially (by me) commissioned Month of Culture, I also visited the Maddox Gallery which was showcasing new work from photographer Tyler Shields. With the launch complete with waitresses dressed in period costume to enhance the decadent mood, ‘Decadence’, is a show for the shows offs.
Exhibiting in collaboration with Imitate Modern, Hollywood’s self confessed “playboy” Shields, has reproduced 18th century courtesans dressed in Marie Antoinette-esque period attire. But these aren’t any old models, the talent includes aspiring Hollywood wannabes such as Isabelle Fuhrman, Jaime King and Tallulah Wilis. Spot them if you can…
There are nudes, cupcakes and kissing…All in soft focus so your voyeur fantasies can be well and truly tickled with a feather!
You can see the extremely extravagant £12,000 photographs for yourself until 24 February at Maddox Gallery, 9 Maddox Street, London W1S 2QE.
