Lauren Greenfield is a photographer and a filmmaker, she tells BJP. Her most recent work, Fashion Show, produced for New York Magazine, is a multimedia piece that mixes both still and moving images. She talks with Olivier Laurent about her work and the reasons that made her quit the VII Photo Agency and follow her husband, Frank Evers, at the Institute for Artist Management.

Lauren Greenfield is widely considered to be one of America’s most acclaimed chroniclers of youth culture. She was selected to the list of American Photos Magazine’s 100 most influential people in photography and one of Canon’s Explorers of Light. Raised in southern California and a graduate of Harvard, Greenfield has received several major awards and grants, including the ICP Infinity Award; the National Geographic Society’s Photographic Documentary Grant; the Hasselblad Foundation Grant; and the Nikon Sabbatical Grant.. She is a member of VII, a photographer’s cooperative based in Paris. Her work appears regularly in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Harper’s Bazaar and Time. Her monographs include the award-winning Fast Forward: Growing Up in the Shadow of Hollywood (Knopf, 1997); and Girl Culture (Chronicle Books, 2002).
