White, Charlie (1972)

The photographer and filmmaker Charlie White explores the strong relationship that exists between the American teenage identity and the popular, consumer culture - ‘I’m an adult looking at the adolescent image as a vehicle for cultural analysis.’ His various photographic series recreate the aesthetic of television sitcoms and advertisements while closely observing the tensed imagery linked to youth by portraying young girls in casting call-like photographs, comparing transgender men with teenage girls or by creating grotesque fictions resembling sci-fi films. Yet, by focusing on teenagers, the American photographer proposes a much wider reflection about American society and its rapport with entertainment, privacy and pop culture.
