Celebrity photographer Tyler Shields sets fire to rare $15000 Louis Vuitton trunk as part of art project

34-year-old celebrity photographer, Tyler Shields set fire to a $15K Louis Vuitton trunk and clicked away as the luxury piece went up in flames. He described the shoot - for his 'Provocateur' series - as being a 'crazy' experience.
 'This is one of the last shots I did for my new book. It took me a few years to find the trunk as they are rare and not cheap.' It's not the first time the eccentric photographer has destroyed luxury items as part of his work.
 In 2012, he burned a $100,000 crocodile skin Hermes Birkin along with then girlfriend Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood. He has also wrecked a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes and a Rolls Royce silver for his work.
 The photographer who was born into poverty said in a previous interview: 'I think what people love about me is that I was a poor kid from Florida who had a piece-of-s*** camera.
 'The point of it is that it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from; if you have a dream you can create anythin








g you want in this world.'

The case is metal. It was on display at the LV exhibition 2yrs ago. All it takes is polishing. Linda, make sure you always buy the real deal.

If you ask me, I don't think he's creative. He's drawing attention by destroying expensive items and that's not creativity. He should have a serious rethink rather that waste precious time and money.
