Now available in paperback, Lauren Greenfield's acclaimed Fast Forward is a powerful look at Los Angeles youth culture and its influence on the rest of our society. From the affluent children of the Westside to the graffiti gangs and party crews of East LA, young Angelenos reckon with an overwhelming barrage of advertising and entertainment images emphasizing money, possessions, and eternal youth. This collection of 79 color photographs, accompanied by interviews with the children and their parents, reveals the realities of growing up fast in a culture that is at once irresistible and unforgiving. A compelling precursor to Greenfield's widely praised Girl Culture, Fast Forward is a telling document of the direction in which today's ultra image-conscious culture is pointed.

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.

Book Description CHRONICLE BOOKS, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Award-winning photographer Lauren Greenfield author of Girl Culture captures the sometimes shocking, always startling images of children and teenagers in the relentlessly fast-lane city of Los Angeles in Fast Forward: Growing up in the Shadow of Hollywood. 80 stunning colour photographs and numerous first-person accounts explore the range of youth experience in the Southland, from the children of the gang culture of South Central and East L.A. to the affluent, often industry (show biz)-related and obsessed world of the Westside. But the barrier between the two cultures is a porous one, evident in how the white and ethnic, rich and poor mingle in the street (namely the Strip), fashion, and the hyperactive media culture of LA. The overwhelming prevalence of image and celebrity, with its materialistic trappings of fast cars and expensive clothes, pervades this now-classic and much sought-after work by a real rising star photographer.
