All these kiddie beauty contestants have been trained to strike a pose instantly – these are snapshots from Susan Anderson’s series “High Glitz.” As young as four, the little creatures are dolled up as “part country music star, part vixen housewife” by their parents and ready to go from tea parties to Tea Parties in style.

Underneath the mountains of make-up, fake teeth, weaves, spray tans and anachronistic costume tackiness, there are, hopefully, kids that will one day move very far away from their parents. Susan Anderson is currently representing our home-grown bizarre at acte2galerie, Paris.
