Book Description:
We share about 98 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees, our closest biological cousins. And never have the similarities between simians and humans been so amusingly and brilliantly captured as in Monkey Portratis. Jill Greenberg has spent 15 years photographing celebrities--from Clint Eastwood to Drew Barrymore--for leading publications, but has recently focused on actors of a different sort. She has been photographing monkeys and apes, many of whom have appeared on film or in television shows. Her intimate portraits of these animals convey a startling range of emotions and personalities, and evoke an almost eerie sense of recognition. Each of these 76 amazingly anthropomorphic photographs will remind you of someone you know. These monkeys in all their glory will cause you to laugh out loud and to wonder just how different we truly are.

Synopsis

We share about 98 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees, our closest biological cousins. And never have the similarities between simians and humans been so amusingly and brilliantly captured as in Monkey Portraits by celebrity photographer Jill Greenberg.

Her intimate portraits of these animals convey a startling range of emotions and personalities. Each of these 76 amazing photographs of monkeys and apes will remind you of someone you know. These pictures will make you laugh out loud and wonder just how different we truly are.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Wonderful 7. September 2006
Von Terri Rowan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Some say they're just animals. Others say they're almost human. What is it about monkeys and apes that fascinate us? Whatever the reason, we love them, and this is what Jill Greenberg celebrates in her new photographic collection, Monkey Portraits.

Old world or new, the monkeys and apes are captured in a range of emotions. Somber to silly, bored to brash, these primates will startle you with the depth of their emotions. As Greenberg points out, the beings caught in these intimate portraits can look surprisingly human, expectedly animal, or both. Either way, as you page through, you'll see a set of eyes here or a mouth there that look as though they could belong to someone you know.

Greenberg's skills behind the lens are starkly apparent. She has managed to bring forth a stunning array of emotions generally reserved for human "people." Anyone can take pictures, but Greenberg can go beyond the photo to that moment between breaths where the truly remarkable can be found.

Are monkeys and apes "mere" animals? Are they something more? Bring this stunning volume home and decide for yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stunning portraits 29. Oktober 2006
Von DS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The photos in this book are stunning, revealing, and thought provoking. That said I wish the silly captions had been left out. They are contrived and instead of revealing something about the subjects end up being an annoyance. Instead of viewing the portraits and searching the faces for some primal connection we're given the photographers attempt at humor. The occasional quotes were far more revealing and thoughtful. Ignore the captions, which fortunately were designed to not be physically intrusive, and instead enjoy searching the faces of these wonderful creatures for the little that separates us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Only connect. 31. August 2007
Von William T. Bebout - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The response elicited by these stunningly emotional portraits are like nothing I have experienced in years of looking at photographs of animals.
I agree with the reviewer who suggested you ignore the captions. These are prime examples of photographs that transend the 1000 words they may be worth. Priceless.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I found this book appalling 27. September 2011
Von Axton Blessendon, Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
---------------------------------------------------
"Monkey Portraits"
by Jill Greenberg
---------------------------------------------------
I thought this book was a real lost opportunity, but also so much so that I found it somewhat offensive, both insulting my intelligence, and the dignity of the primates whose portraits are included. Ms. Greenberg's specialty is taking formal portraits of captive animals, in this case mostly monkeys and apes who work in TV and Hollywood films... That's okay, I guess, these animals have seen plenty of interesting stuff, and have a lot going on in their eyes... The portraits themselves are often quite striking, but what I felt was unfortunate was the captions that went along with them, bland, idiotic stuff, like "MR. SLEEPYHEAD" and "WHOOPSY DAISY!" or "GRUMPY FACE" -- the kind of thing you'd see on a really dumb postcard or on a dingy poster hanging up in a pediatrician's waiting room. Thus, a well laid-out collection of striking, finely composed photographs is reduced to a moronic lowest common denominator and these intelligent, soulful primates are made into mockeries, for no good reason. It's depressing. (Axton)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing photographs, not enough info 11. Mai 2007
Von L. Flynn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is certainly fun to look at - the photos will crack you up for sure. It will serve to remind you of our relationship to other primates, perhaps sparking an interest, whether you are science-minded or simply curious, and you will want to know more about them - and therein lies my criticism of the book. In my opinion, each photo should be accompanied by a small blurb about the primate, it's habitat, etc.., or at the very least, the species name. Perhaps it was the author's intent to omit such information, in order to minimize perceived differences between humans and other primates, and let the photos serve as an artistic unifier. While I can appreciate that concept, I still want to know what kind of monkey I'm looking at, so I can go find out more about them if I choose.
