High Glitz is a close-up and intimate look at America's child beauty pageants, and in turn our society's obsession with youth, beauty, fame, and fortune. Susan Anderson's vibrant portraits of pageant contestants twist notions of sexuality and identity, with a new perspective on this uniquely American subculture. Anderson captures the results of the time-consuming pageant transformation process in exquisite detail.

Anderson has upcoming shows at The Museum Dr. Guislain and Casino Luxembourg Forum d'Art Contemporain.
