Jaime King Plays Marie Antoinette with Her Baby Boys in Tyler Shields' 'Decadence' Series!
The series is set in the legendary Queen of France’s court and was shot in the summer of 2015 using a 50-year-old 8×10 camera as well as various Hasselblad cameras. It will be unveiled at London’s Maddox Gallery for the first time.
“Decadence is set in Tuileries Palace in 1667 and The Palace of Versailles 1672,” Tyler said in a statement. “I wanted to give my version of an inside look into what I imagine it would be like if you were able to take a photograph of The Court of The Palace of Versailles and Tuileries Palace, an intimate look inside one of the most fascinating times in history.”
The cast of stars in the series also includes Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Holland Roden, Isabelle Fuhrman, Lydia Hearst, Tallulah Willis, Christa B. Allen, Poppy Jamie, Courtney Halverson, Connor Paolo, Emily Alyn Lind, Lili Peper, Shoshana Bush, Spencer Locke, Mani Yarosh, Faith Picozzi, Logan Huffman, Madison Paige, Alex Krosney, Natalie Lind, and Filip Milenkovic.

Jaime King’s Poem About “Decadence”
The plowing over un-treaded snow buried canopies of wishes fulfilled then subsided into a blistered kiss of calmest calms
I have caught you not but to be beckoned by the very hardness and softness and realness of this earth
To observe, to take apart to look at the yellow side, the dirty corner then note the smoothness of the surface moon
Maybe the moon could feel smooth to those used to the torrential rains, to those of the Austrian bred, to-
I caught u trying to pin your needles to my underwear and sew yourself onto my garments and I didn’t really appreciate what you were doing or that I allowed the opening for this
Unmistakable stitch, unmistakably your mark, unmistakably your signature, the streamlined approach to doing nothing stream lined at all but to engross me.
So I shall unmistakably wander, unmistakably question and answer to one voice echoed within the deepest, longest, valleys of my ribs.
Then launch it from the pads of my spine and every tip will become the ever mobile take- off to the Tuileries, the hallways of golden mirrors, the high held in which we come from.
