Tyler Shields set fire to a $15K Louis Vuitton trunk and clicked away as the luxury piece went up in flames. The 34-year-old 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.
