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.
