Shock photographer Tyler Shields is obsessed with high-priced handbags ... specifically, doing strange things to them for the sake of his art.
Shields got a living python to wrap around a $185k Birkin bag for a photo shoot ... and convinced a model to get involved in the slithery action. Like, really involved.
Tyler didn't burn anything luxurious this time around, but we're told the shoot still took a few hours. Hopefully the model wasn't ophidiophobic.
