THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LENS: Model and actress Mia Tyler is pursuing a new career in photography and art. Tyler, 33, will be displaying and selling her artwork at Riff, Andy Hilfiger’s pop-up shop, at 313 Bowery in New York.
“I like to photograph people, abandoned places and my sister,” said Tyler, referring to her younger sister, Chelsea Tyler, a 22-year-old model. A private preview of Mia Tyler’s photos will take place at Riff on Thursday, and the gallery will open to the public on Feb. 25. The Tylers are the daughters of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler, and the preview party is sponsored by Andrew Charles, the sportswear line inspired by the rock star. Mia Tyler’s photography will be on display indefinitely at Riff, which opened for the Andrew Charles line in October and has been going strong ever since, said a spokeswoman.
