Author(s): Lauren Greenfield
A highly anticipated monograph from the internationally acclaimed documentary photographer and filmmaker
Lauren Greenfield: Generation Wealth is both a retrospective and an investigation into the subject of wealth over the last twenty-five years. Greenfield has traveled the world - from Los Angeles to Moscow, Dubai to China - bearing witness to the global boom-and-bust economy and documenting its complicated consequences. Provoking serious reflection, this book is not about the rich, but about the desire to be wealthy, at any cost.
"Greenfield’s pictures are intimate and candid. Their authenticity derives from the trust required between photographer and subject, trust that each will deal only in raw truths, and with respect."—Leah Ollman, Los Angeles Times
"One of the most acclaimed chroniclers of youth culture and the affluent."—TIME
"Her rigorous eye has taken her to numerous places that seem as though they would be difficult to gain unfettered access — a clinic for eating disorders, the most expensive home in America, backstage at beauty pageants, the Bunny Ranch, and an infamous Atlanta strip club known as Magic City."—Jeanette D. Moses, American Photo
