Monkey Business

A friend, Daniel Shea, just posted a very funny response to the whole Jill Greenberg incident.

As far as my opinion goes... part of me is like "good for you! it takes some balls to pretty much put yourself in a situation where you could be throwing most of your client list in the trash." But the other part of me is like "Well... aren't you the most mature person in the world, Jill Greenberg. Monkeys taking a poop on McCain's head sure is sophisticated."

Regardless I've always steered away from her political commentaries anyways. I think her End Times series didn't need the whole political undertone in order to be successful or eye-catching. When I read the artist statement it actually seemed rather a forced concept. The images were fine and compelling enough simply as "images of crying babies."
