Gallery space Intimate Modern has announced the latest collection from controversial photographer Tyler Shields, entitled ‘Indulgence’. The series stars Hollywood starlet Ana Mulvoy Ten. The series is the latest in Shields’ provocative play with Hollywood luxury and high-fashion, with Hermès-labelled milk and cigarettes, Louis Vuitton champagne and Prada popcorn. The ‘masterpiece’, as it were, involves the beautiful Mulvoy Ten playing tug of war with an alligator over a Hermes Birkin Bag, worth around $100,000.

The collection will be exhibited from Thursday 22nd May – but you can check out some of the shots from the series – as well as the preview video of Ana Mulvoy Ten grappling with the ‘gator – below:
