American Minor

American Minor Charlie White - American Minor
Exploring the complex realities of American teen culture.
The photographs of Los Angeles-based artist Charlie White explore the complex social and psychological realities of American culture. "American Minor" delves into an important subtext of White's work: the American teen. By cataloging studio archives, film stills, animation stills, scripts, and photographs, the book highlights the artist's investigations into the representation of the American teen girl. Through images culled from the artist's two-year study of an ex-urban teenager, archives of magazine covers featuring iconic blonde models, stills from his first 35 mm film, and his photographic comparative study of teens and transgenders, "American Minor" presents White's ongoing and never-before-seen studies of the American teen subject as image and idea. This book sheds new light on the artist's oeuvre within the context of his new work in film, animation, and cultural archiving.
Born in 1972, Charlie White lives and works in Los Angeles.
