A highly anticipated monograph from the internationally acclaimed documentary photographer and filmmaker

Lauren Greenfield: Generation Wealth is both a retrospective and an investigation into the subject of wealth over the last twenty-five years. Greenfield has traveled the world - from Los Angeles to Moscow, Dubai to China - bearing witness to the global boom-and-bust economy and documenting its complicated consequences. Provoking serious reflection, this book is not about the rich, but about the desire to be wealthy, at any cost.

"Her rigorous eye has taken her to numerous places that seem as though they would be difficult to gain unfettered access — a clinic for eating disorders, the most expensive home in America, backstage at beauty pageants, the Bunny Ranch, and an infamous Atlanta strip club known as Magic City."—Jeanette D.
