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 photographs reveal 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.
