This guy is amazing. His photographs veer from absolute beauty to total gore to flat-out weird, and a lot of his work looks kind of effortless, like he just happened to be in the right place with a camera as Michael Trevino and Lindsay Lohan had their little vampire outburst.
I’ve read some criticism over his use of violent imagery, but that’s the difference between shooting for yourself and shooting for commission – if anyone out there doesn’t like these photos, they don’t have to look at them. Art is entirely subjective so every person can (and usually does) have a different opinion.
Take a look at his website, it’s not for the faint of heart but if you’re interested in photography in any way it will do you good.
Goes without saying, the photos below belong to His Highness Mr Shields.
