Artist-photographer-filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles_ has made a career chronicling the excesses of America’s image-obsessed culture. In her latest and most epic project to date, she holds up a mirror to the super-rich, brilliantly capturing the human consequences of the bust-or-boom economy. Follow Greenfield on a globe-spanning journey inside the lives of the international wealthy elite—from child beauty queens in Los Angeles to the nouveau riche in Moscow. The resulting portrait is an entertaining and eye-opening look at the erosion of the American Dream and pervasive influences of materialism, greed and fame.
