Fast Forward: Growing Up in the Shadow of Hollywood
In eighty colour photographs and interviews with children and their parents, photographer and Los Angeles native, Lauren Greenfield exposes the realities of growing up too fast in a culture that is irresistible and unforgiving.
""The most significant series of photographs of American adolescents and adolescence culture since Mary Ellen Mark's Streetwise."
From the Inside Flap
Photographer Lauren Greenfield capures often shocking, always startling images of children at school, at play, or at home in the precocious city of Los Angeles. The stunning color photographs range from the children of the gang culture of South Central and East L.A. to the affluent, often show-business world of the Westside. Underlying is the overwhelming importance of image and celebrity, with its materialistic trappings of fast cars and expensive clothes. 80 full-color photos.
