New York Film Academy Guest Speakers
Lauren Greenfield has garnered critical acclaim for her work documenting modern youth culture, examining everything from eating disorders and the obsession with body image, to the extreme effects of consumerism. Author of the groundbreaking books, “Fast Forward,” “Girl Culture,” and “Thin,” Greenfield has been named one of the 25 most influential photographers working today by American Photo. Her work is in many museum collections including the SF MOMA, the Getty, LACMA, Art Institute of Chicago, ICP, and the Smithsonian. Greenfield spoke at length about her career, including her documentary, “The Queen of Versailles,” which was selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012 and won the Best Director Award in the U.S. Documentary competition. Her newest project, Generation Wealth is a monograph that investigates the subject of wealth and money over the past quarter century.
