Jill Greenberg: Monkey Portraits

Expanded Edition. Featuring eight new portraits


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.

Jill has spent 15 years photographing everyone from Kelly Osbourne to Clint Eastwood, but has recently focused on photographing stars of a different sort - monkeys and apes, many of whom have appeared in films or on television shows.

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.
