Lauren Greenfield – Thin


Lauren Greenfield Thin

Although this is just a preview of a film by Lauren Greenfield, it’s great treatment by an excellent photographer. The story sets quickly: within 10 seconds you know the story thesis. Greenfield packs in a lot of energy, with cuts every 3-5 seconds. She bakes in some shock value images (tubes in stomach, skinny arms) and emotion (crying girl begging, “I want to be thin”). Most importantly, Greenfield REALLY CARES about this topic. You want to know more.

Greenfield started as a stil photographer and much of her work is still in slideshow sequences. Check out a few of her photographic slide shows, “UT Football” for a taste. Caution – You can spend some time here…
