Monkey Portraits by Jill Greenberg

Published Jul 17, 2013

Jill Greenberg is an acclaimed photographer specializing in portrait and fine art photography.

These amusing images are part of her “Monkey Portraits” series, featuring captures of monkeys and their almost human expressions and behavior.

“I began photographing monkeys and apes by accident.” she explains. “I had booked a small white capuchin named Katie for an advertising job. She was supposed to be having a tea party with two little girls in a pink room, standing on the table banging pots and wearing pink striped bloomers.

When I got the contact sheets back, the images startled and amused me. Katie’s expressions were so human and her intelligence seemed so obvious I realized I had discovered a new subject – one perfect for social commentary.”
