The capital of pop has a profound effect on those who must grow up here; image, money and violence hold a grip on youth culture like an addictive drug as children soak up the examples set by the adults and media around them. L.A. native Lauren Greenfield proves this relationship better than many traditional social scientists could.

Opportunities abound for the documentarian of human misery: war, hunger, poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, abuse. For the "concerned photographer," a term coined in the late 1960s to describe a commitment to conscientious, humane witness, it's a matter of deciding where to turn, what to focus on and how. Lauren Greenfield, a photojournalist based in L.A.

Hooray for Lauren Greenfield and her wonderful work. How refreshing it is to see such beautiful, ironic images, almost reminiscent of Cartier-Bresson, about a subject that for too long has been hidden from the public. Keep up the good work, Lauren. STEVEN P. FISHER Beverly Hills

Pollack "Polly" Ann Williams, who was featured in the HBO documentary "Thin," an unflinching look at several women with serious eating disorders, was found dead Feb. 8 at her home in Hixson, Tenn. She was 33. Williams died from an overdose of sleeping pills, a suicide that was "a direct result of her internal battle with the eating disorder," her sister, Bebe W. Reed, told The Times. "She said she could not fight the fight any longer."

Century City's long-planned Annenberg Space for Photography will open March 27 with "L8S ANG3LES." No, that isn't a typo: The "8" in the exhibition title refers to the number of artists whose photographic prints will be displayed on walls, the "3" to a trio of L.A. Times photographers whose pictures of life in the city will be projected in a digital gallery.
