Jill Greenberg’s amazing animal portraits are so expressive, I simply had to share a few of her enormous series with you. I say ‘enormous’ because she literally has over 80 portraits of monkeys to her credit, 40 portraits of bears (Ursine) and tons of dog portraits. I wish I could have shared them all with you, but it’d take about an hour to download. So, instead, I’ve chosen a few of my favorites from her prolific series of work.
As you will see below, she gets more personality from the faces of animals than most photographers do from people.
If you love these shots as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that she has publications of both the Monkeys (available on Amazon) and The Bears (Ursine) available directly from the Clampart gallery which sells several of her stunning prints from the Ursine series as well.
Jill is a hugely successful photographer who uses digital manipulation, illustration and more in her craft. She has shot a lot for the entertainment industry, fashion, celebrity portraits and more. She has won many industry awards and continues to expand her portfolio. Visit her website here.
Greenberg was born in 1967 in Montreal, Canada. She graduated in 1989 from the Rhode Island School of Design and moved to New York City, where she was based until 2000. She now lives in Los Angeles with her family.
