Tyler Goes East sees Canadian photo-artist travel from his usual home gallery in Chelsea to East London - where he spent many years working as Senior Fashion Editor of AnOther Man, AnOther Magazine and Dazed & Confused - to exhibit highlights from his series Boys, Etudes, and Auguries Of Innocence.
Many of Udall's images look into gender, sexuality, and the blurry line we walk between fact and fiction. His images challenge the cultural norms that dictate the way we look, the way we talk and most importantly who or how we can love, whilst observing people and places in their orbit. The image were all shot between 2010 and 2016 in Vancouver amongst a community of millennials and Generation Z who are gentle, vulnerable and fiercely unapologetic.
As an emerging photographer, Tyler Udall (b 1979) has already made a big impact in the world of photography. In his short years as a photographer he has shot for many high profile fashion and art magazines; published two books: August 2009-August 2010 (OH WOW Gallery, 2010) and Auguries of Innocence (Armour Press, 2015); had three solo shows at The Little Black Gallery London; exhibited at Photo London (2015) and Photofairs San Francisco (2017); and been part of group show PINK at Colette Paris (2017) curated by Luis Venegas. His images are reminiscent of other great fine-art photographers Juergen Teller and Ryan McGinley.
Based in London in the early 2000’s, Udall was Senior Fashion Editor of AnOther Man, AnOther Magazine and Dazed & Confused and was involved in creating iconic covers of Kate Moss, Kirsten Dunst, Tilda Swinton and Natalie Portman. He moved to New York as Creative Director for the agency Fred and Associates, where he teamed up legendary fashion greats with world leading artists. Udall is now based in his home country Canada as Fashion Director at the Blanche Macdonald Centre in Vancouver – Canada’s top fashion school. He is currently working on his first short film.
