In her large-scale color photographs of animals and people, Jill Greenberg highlights the stunning physical beauty of all of her subjects, while using their expressive faces and bodies to question the division between the human and the animal and to explore the darker side of human nature. At once sleek and raw, her photographs are informed by her commercial work and shaped by her deeply held feminism and keen sensitivity to her subjects. Working in distinctly defined series, Greenberg has captured the uncanny humanness of monkeys, apes, bears, and horses; photographed crying toddlers as a reaction to the dangerous policies, beliefs, and practices causing profound harm to the earth and all living things; and shot women underwater, clad in bathing suits and matching heels, to represent the impossible ideals of femininity hindering female empowerment and advancement.
