Exhibition Captures Images of Thin Culture

Thin and Girl Culture, a pair of exhibitions opening in the Museum of Art on Friday, Jan. 30, displays photographs by Lauren Greenfield around themes of eating disorders. For Thin, Greenfield followed and photographed a group of women in treatment at the Renfrew Center, a women's health center specializing in treatment of eating disorders and other women's issues. The project grew out of Greenfield's collection Girl Culture, which focused on the image-obsession of women in the United States. Following are two samples from the exhibition, which will remain on display through April 26.
